Bio

Doug Bentley Bio

Bentley, all 145 pounds of him, spent his NHL career making life miserable for opposing goalies. His speed, skill and desire more than made up for a lack of size.

The native of Delisle, Saskatchewan, was originally regarded as too small to play in the NHL despite possessing the kind of speed and shiftiness that enabled him to avoid larger defensemen. It wasn't until he was 23 that Bentley, a left wing, came to the NHL with the Chicago Black Hawks (as they were known then) and scored 12 goals in 39 games as a rookie in 1939-40.
