Goalie Bill Dickie played one game for the Chicago Black Hawks in 1941-42. He was a fine player in university and various senior leagues who was known for his endurance.
Born in Campbellton, New Brunswick, Dickie spent four years at Mount Allison University before joining the Saint John Beavers of the NBSHL in 1937-38. He excelled there for two years then moved over to the Cape Breton league and led all goalies in games played for two seasons as a member of the Sydney Millionaires.
In 1941-42, Dickie signed on with the Montreal Pats of the QSHL. He won ten games for the club that year and was thrust into an NHL game as a last minute replacement for Chicago's Sam Lopresti on February 5, 1942. The Hawks played tight defence and came away 4-3 victors to give Dickie a perfect record as an NHLer. A few months later he retired and entered the military for the duration of World War II.
