Bio

Alec Connell Bio

Connell began playing hockey while stationed in Kingston, Ontario, during World War I. He became a goalie because he couldn't skate.

But he was a quick study, going from Kingston of the Ontario Hockey Association in 1917 to making his NHL debut at age 22 with the Ottawa Senators on Nov. 29, 1924. He went 17-12 and one tie in 30 games as a rookie in 1924-25, leading the NHL with seven shutouts.
