    Biography


    A graduate of Daniel McIntyre Collegiate, Jack went on to play for St.
    Andrews from 1933 thru 1948 (except in 1943, '44, '45, and '46 when he
    served in the RCAF), first in the junior league, then in the senior
    league. A complete player, he was equally effective on offence and
    defence. He was the league's top scorer in 1941. Nicknamed the
    "Galloping Ghost", Jack was one of the first in Winnipeg to use the
    hook shot.
