Bio

Bert Olmstead Bio

Not known as the best skating forward, Olmstead used a physical playing style to compensate for that weakness, earning the nickname "Dirty Bertie."

Olmstead spent his first three NHL seasons with Chicago Black Hawks (1948-51), who traded him and forward Vic Stasiuk to the Detroit Red Wings for forward Steve Black and defenseman Lee Fogolin Sr., on Dec. 2, 1950. Less than three weeks later, the Red Wings traded Olmstead to the Montreal Canadiens for forward Leo Gravelle.
