Ice Hockey Wiki


Andrew Samuel McManus (born October 22, 1911, Belfast, Northern Ireland – July 1, 1976) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 26 games in the National Hockey League. He played with the Boston Bruins and Montreal Maroons. In 1935 McManus helped the Maroons win their last Stanley Cup, so his name was engraved on the cup for his efforts.

He played junior hockey with the Toronto Canoe Club from 1928 to 1930. McManus then moved out east and played senior for the New Glasgow Tigers and Fredericton Capitals.

In 1932 he joined the Moncton Hawks and won two straight Allan Cups in 1933 and 1934. This got him in with the Montreal Maroons the next season. McManus played in 25 games that season, but got little ice time on the powerful club and only scored one assist.

He played minor pro hockey with various teams in the United States until 1943. That year he moved back to Canada and played senior hockey in Saint John and, again, in Moncton.

He retired in 1947.
