Playing Career[edit | edit source]

He played junior for the hometown Hamilton Tiger Cubs, a Detroit Red Wings farm team. Oliver began his National Hockey League career with the Detroit Red Wings. He would also play with the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Minnesota North Stars. He played 18 NHL seasons, (1958 - 1975), and made the All-Star Game five times.
