Henry George "Hank" Goldup (October 29, 1918 in Kingston, Ontario – December 14, 2008) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player who played 202 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers. He won the Stanley Cup in 1942 with the Toronto Maple Leafs. His son Glenn Goldup played professional hockey in the NHL also.

Playing Career[edit | edit source]

Goldup played junior hockey with the local Kingston Dunlop Forts in 1935–36 before moving to Toronto where he played two seasons, for North Vocational and the Toronto Marlboros. He played one season with the Toronto Goodyears senior team before turning professional with the Toronto Maple Leafs organization in 1939. He split his first season with the Maple Leafs and the Pittsburgh Hornets of the American Hockey League (AHL). He played the 1940–41 and 1941–42 seasons with the Maple Leafs and was a member of the 1942 Stanley Cup winning team. This was the team that came back from three games down to win the Stanley Cup against the Detroit Red Wings. He was traded in 1942 to the New York Rangers and joined the Canadian army in 1943, returning to the Rangers in 1944–45, his final full season in the NHL. He split the next season between the Rangers and their AHL affiliate New Haven. In June 1946, he was traded to the Red Wings, but the trade was nullified when Flash Hollett retired instead of accepting the trade. Goldup was later transferred to the Cleveland Barons of the AHL, playing a full season in 1946–47. He broke his leg severely and required a brace on it for two years. He did not play the following season, but after a tryout with the Washington Lions, he did return to competitive hockey in the amateur senior leagues with Shawinigan, Quebec and Fenelon Falls, Ontario before giving up hockey in 1949.

Goldup was inducted into the Kingston Sports Hall of Fame and the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame.
