Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Stan Long
Defenceman Stanley Long was given an apt name in terms of describing his NHL career. He was a fine offensive player who spent several years in the minors and whose big league career consisted of three Stanley Cup playoff games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1952.

Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, Long played junior hockey with the OHA's Barrie Flyers. The Montreal prospect then spent a year with the PCHL's Victoria Cougars and the Buffalo Bisons of the AHL. The young rearguard was summoned to play in the 1952 playoffs and helped the Habs reach the finals where they lost to the Detroit Red Wings. After his brief exposure to the NHL, Long returned to the minors for two seasons before hanging up his skates in 1954. He then stayed in the game for one more season as coach of the OHA's Kitchener Canucks.
