Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- George O'Grady
George O'Grady was a defenceman who played four games for the Montreal Wanderers in 1917-18, the inaugural season of the NHL. He was a physical competitor who earned a fair number of penalties but also demonstrated offensive prowess at times.

The Montreal native spent two years with the city's Gamets club in the senior league. During his second year with the team in 1912-13 he led the Montreal Senior League with 33 minutes in penalties but also scored four goals in 11 matches. He then played three years with the Wanderers when they were still competing in the National Hockey Association.

After spending a year with the senior Montreal Stars, O'Grady rejoined the Wanderers in 1917. They had retained his rights after the NHA folded on November 26, 1917. His old club became one of the founding members of the National Hockey League in December 1917. O'Grady played four games for the Wanderers and retired when the team was forced to withdraw after their arena burned down.
