Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Duke McCurry
Duke McCurry played his junior hockey in Toronto with the Canoe Club in 1919-20 and led them to the Memorial Cup with an incredible 21 goals and 32 points in 12 games.

McCurry headed to northern Ontario and played in Timmins for two years and then played a year back in Toronto with the Argonauts of the OHA Senior A league. From 1923 to 1925 he played in Pittsburgh with the USAHA's Yellowjackets.

In September, 1925 he signed as a free agent with the NHL's Pittsburgh Pirates and had 17 points in 36 games. McCurry remained with the Pirates for another three years but he seemed to lose his scoring touch which was a major concern for the team. So much so that in September, 1929 the Pirates dealt him to the Montreal Maroons for cash. However, McCurry refused to report to Montreal and he sat out the entire season. Although it was evident the Pirates did not want him, he liked the city of Pittsburgh and signed a one-year pact with the Yellowjackets, now playing in the IHL. He retired from hockey after the 1930-31 season.
