Fred Michael Thurier (January 11, 1917 in Granby, Quebec – November 20, 1999) was a Canadian professional ice hockey centre.

Playing careerEdit

Thurier played parts of three seasons with the New York Americans and Rangers during the 1940s. He was best known for his offensive output in the AHL. He led the AHL in scoring with the Springfield Indians during the 1940–41 season, and helped lead the Cleveland Barons to Calder Cup victories in 1948 and 1951. Despite his offensive production in the American Hockey League Thurier only spent one full season in the NHL (1944-45). That was with the New York Rangers who claimed him in a special dispersal draft for former New York Americans.

In 80 NHL games Thurier recorded 25 goals and 27 assists for 52 points.
