Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jack Jackson
John "Jack" Jackson was a high scoring defenseman in the United States Hockey League when he got a contract offer from the Chicago Black Hawks in 1946.

Jackson, who was born in Windsor, Ontario, began his professional career with Kansas City of the USHL and he was an immediate success with 11 goals and 22 points in 39 games. It was the offensive outburst that earned him his ticket to the Windy City and the NHL.

Jackson played 48 games for the Black Hawks during the 1946-47 season but he was unable to deliver the offensive production he provided for Kansas City. Jackson chipped in two goals and seven points, but it wasn't enough to keep in Chicago beyond that one campaign.

Back in the USHL, Jackson continued to be an offensive force from the defense along with fellow blue liner Doug Baldwin. In 1950 he left Kansas City and split the season between Denver of the USHL and the American Hockey League New Haven Ramblers.

His final campaign came in 1951-52 and it was spent with the Pacific Coast Hockey League's Seattle Ironmen. Jackson scored six goals and 19 points in 54 games with the Ironmen before taking his final lap around the rink.
