Ice Hockey Wiki

Pat McReavy (January 16, 1918 – November 13, 2001) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player who played 55 games in the National Hockey League. Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, he played with the Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins. In 1939 he played 6 regular season games, never appearing in the playoffs, but Boston still engraved his name on the Stanley Cup. He would win one more Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 1941 as a full time member. Pat McReavy is often misspelt Pat McCreavy with an extra "C".

He played junior hockey with the St. Michael's Majors and the Copper Cliff Redmen. McReavy played for the Redmen when they lost the 1936-37 Memorial Cup Final. In 1937-38 McReavy played for the Sudbury Wolves who represented Canada at the 1938 World Championship.

After playing with the Boston Bruins and their farm teams for three years (1938-41) McReavy was sold to the Detroit Red Wings in the 1941-42 NHL season.

World War II policy in Canada forced McReavy to remain in the country. He played for Montreal RCAF of the Quebec Senior Hockey League in 1942-43 and 1943-44 and the Valleyfield Braves in 1944-45.

After the war, McReavy was sent to the St. Louis Flyers of the American Hockey League by the Red Wings. He stayed there for only two seasons (1945-46 & 1946-47).

McReavy came back home to Owen Sound and joined the Owen Sound Mercurys in 1947. He played for them for five seasons, winning the Allan Cup in 1950-51.

He retired in 1952.
