Playing career[]

Ed Gorman had a long amateur career in competitive hockey before joining the Ottawa Senators of the NHL for the 1924–25 season. Born in Buckingham, Quebec near Ottawa, he played for the Buckingham senior team from 1913–1915 before moving south to play for the Pittsburgh Duquesne and Pittsburgh Athletic Club of the United States Amateur Hockey Association. He returned to the Ottawa area in 1917, playing for Pembroke Munitions. He then played competitive amateur hockey in the Ottawa City Senior League from 1918 until 1924, including the Ottawa Montagnards in their try for the 1924 Allan Cup.

He was signed to the Ottawa Senators in 1924, and he played three seasons for the Senators, including their Stanley Cup championship of 1927. After the Cup win, he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for cash, part of a sell-off by the financially-strapped Senators. He played 19 games for Toronto before the Maple Leafs demoted him. He refused the demotion and was traded to Kitchener, Ontario of the Canadian-American Hockey League. He reported, and played 12 games for Kitchener before retiring from competitive hockey.
