Ernest "Moose" Johnson (February 26, 1886 in Montreal, Quebec - March 25, 1963) was a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played for the Montreal Wanderers of the National Hockey Association. He also spent time with the Portland Rosebuds and Victoria Cougars of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association.
Moose had perhaps the longest stick ever in hockey, measuring 99 inches. He would use this long stick to devastating effect, and would poke the puck away from oncoming forwards. He would help the Wanderers and Cougars to Stanley Cup victories, and help the Rosebuds become the first American team to be represented in the Cup finals in 1916. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1952.
