Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- George Owen
Defenceman George Owen was a fine offensive player on the Boston Bruins between 1928-33. His 44 goals in 183 games was a fairly high ratio for the time and was invaluable to the Beantowners' transition game.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Owen moved to Massachusetts as a teenager and attended Newton High School in suburban Boston. He spent four years at Harvard University and eventually joined the Boston Hockey Club of the USAHA in 1923-24. The next year he stopped playing to coach Harvard before stepping back on to the ice with the Boston AA Unicorns.

After two solid years with the senior Boston University squad, Owen's rights were traded to the Bruins by the Toronto Maple Leafs. The talented defender hit the 12-goal mark twice in five years for Boston and helped the club win the Stanley Cup in 1929 and dominate the NHL regular season in 1929-30 with a 38-5-1 record. Owen retired in 1933 to coach the Michigan Tech varsity team. Owen was elected to the US Hockey Hall of Fame and the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame.
