Biography

Moose Goheen is one of only three Americans to have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. An outstanding football and baseball player as a youngster, he learned his hockey on the outdoor rinks of White Bear Lake and nearby St. Paul. In 1915 he joined the St. Paul AC before leaving to serve in World War I. After the war he returned to the St. Paul team and played for the 1920 U.S. Olympic team. He played the rover position for the Olympic team, as the 1920 ice hockey tournament was played as a seven-man game for the only time in Olympic history. In 1925, St. Paul and its league turned professional and Moose did also, remaining with the team until 1932. Moose Goheen, one of the first players to ever wear a helmet, spurned several offers to play in the NHL, notably two by the Bruins and the Maple Leafs. He spent a good part of his life working with the Northern States Power Company
