Biography

A Toronto native and forward in the Canadian province of Ontario throughout his entire ice hockey career, Alfred “Buddy” Horne got his start at the junior level with the Weston Dukes in 1950. After spending the 1951-1952 season with the Galt Black Hawks of the Junior Ontario Hockey Association, he advanced to the senior level by joining the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen. During his tenure with the team, which lasted until 1958, he won an Allan Cup, given annually to the Canadian men’s senior ice hockey champions, in 1955 and was invited to represent Canada at the 1956 Winter Olympics. At the tournament he played in three games, scored one goal, and took home a bronze medal for his home nation. He spent the 1958-1959 season with the Whitby Dunlops, although he only played in six games with them before taking the next two years off. When he returned he split his time between the Senior Ontario Hockey Association’s Waterloo Tigers and the independent Toronto All-Stars before taking another break from the sport, this time for three years. He had a three-season comeback beginning in 1965, with the first two spent with the Orillia Pepsis and the final with the Collingwood Kings. In 1968 he hung up his skates for good.
