Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Harvey Bennett
Harvey Bennett was born July 23, 1925 in Edington, Saskatchewan. A Memorial Cup winner with the OHA-Jr. Oshawa Generals in 1944, Bennett was also a Memorial Cup participant in 1942 (Regina Abbotts) and in 1943 (Oshawa Generals), before making his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins in 1944-45.

The goaltender from Edington, Saskatchewan went on to play 25 games with the Bruins, while seeing limited action with the EAHL's Boston Olympics. The 1944-45 season would prove to be Bennett's only season in the NHL, spending the better part of the next 14 seasons in the AHL with the Providence Reds.

In 1945-46, Bennett earned EAHL First All-Star Team honours and captured the George L. Davis Jr. Trophy (fewest goals against-EAHL) as a member of the Boston Olympics before moving on to the AHL's Hershey Bears in 1946-47 and one year later began his career with Providence.

While in Providence, Bennett had brief stints in the OHA-Sr. with Chatam, the QHL with Trois-Rivieres and the EHL with Washington.

Harvey Bennett retired from hockey following the 1958-59 season.
