Biography

After a year with the Sydney Navy of the Cape Breton Senior Hockey League, defenseman Arthur “Art” Hurst’s ice hockey career was interrupted by his two years of service in World War II. When he returned in 1945 he suited up with the Toronto Bowser Orphans of the Toronto Mercantile Hockey League for two years, although he spent part of the second season with the Toronto Staffords of the Senior Ontario Hockey League. In 1947 he began an affiliation with the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen that would last, nearly without interruption, until his 1958 retirement from active play. During this time he won an Allan Cup, given annually to the Canadian senior men’s ice hockey champions, in 1953, but was in the midst of a two-season sojourn with the Stratford Indians when the team won a second Allan Cup in 1955. Nevertheless he joined the Dutchmen when they were chosen to represent Canada at the 1956 Winter Olympic ice hockey event. At the tournament he played in eight games, scored three goals, and took home a bronze medal. He died in November 1993 in Kitchener after a short illness.
