Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Frank Brophy
Frank Brophy had an extremely short NHL career, and a very short life. In 1919, he signed a free agent contract with the Quebec Bulldogs of the NHL and played in 21 games. He compiled a record of 3-18-0 with a 7.13 gaa.

On March 6, 1920, Brophy was victimized for eleven goals in an 11-2 loss to the Toronto St. Pats. Five goals came off the stick of Mickey Roach. That was the only professional hockey season of Brophy's life.

The Bulldogs were one of four NHL founder teams in 1917 but did not operate during the inaugural year due to financial problems. The players of the former NHA franchise were then dispersed throughout the league. The team finally got everything straightened away in time for the third NHL season. However, after just one year of existence, the club was transferred to Hamilton, Ontario for the 1920-21 season and the franchise was renamed the Tigers.

Brophy died in 1930 at the age of 29.
