Floyd Curry

Floyd James Curry (August 11 1925 in Chapleau, Ontario, Canada - September 16 2006 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) was a Canadian right winger.

He played junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association for three seasons from 1941-44. The Generals made the Memorial Cup final in each of those years, winning the cup in 1944.

In 1944-45 Curry played hockey on local Toronto teams.

He then signed with the Montreal Canadiens and was assigned to their Quebec Senior Hockey League affiliate - the Montreal Royals. Curry played two seasons with them (1945-46 & 1946-47) winning the Allan Cup in the latter season.

Curry played his entire National Hockey League career with the Montreal Canadiens. His career started in 1947 and ended in 1958. During his time with Montreal, Floyd won four Stanley Cups in 1953, 1956, 1957, & 1958.

This puts Curry in a rather small group - winning the Stanley Cup, Allan Cup, and Memorial Cup - and all of them as a player.

He recorded his only NHL career hat trick on October 29, 1951, a night when Queen Elizabeth II was in attendance at the Montreal Forum.

After retiring as a player, he coached the Montreal Royals, then went on to work for the Canadiens front office for over forty years as director of sales and travel secretary. In summer of 1968 he was promoted to Assistant General manager. He remained in that position until 1978. During his time in Montreal the Canadiens won the Stanley Cup 6 more times. Curry's name was added to the cup in 1977 & 1978.
