Biography

Goalkeeper Francis William “Dinty” Moore’s first major victory in hockey came with the Toronto Canoe Club in 1920, when the team won the Memorial Cup, given annually to the junior men’s ice hockey champions in Canada. He had been playing with the Port Colborne Sailors of the Ontario Hockey League since 1930 when, in 1935, he was recruited to join the Toronto British Consols and the Port Arthur Bearcats. In the latter case, however, he was recruited not only to join a team, but to represent his country, as the Bearcats were Canada’s choice to represent the nation in ice hockey at the 1936 Winter Olympics. At the tournament, where the team eventually took the silver medal, he watched the net for five games. Upon returning from the Olympics, he played one season with the Toronto Goodyears of the OHA. From 1942 through 1945 he was the President of the Ontario Hockey Association and also spent time as a referee. Since 1976, the year of his death, the F.W. “Dinty” Moore Trophy has been given annually to the rookie goaltender with the best goals against average in the Ontario Hockey League during the regular season with at least 22 full hours in net. Some of his Olympic gear, including his jersey, now resides in Toronto’s Hockey Hall of Fame.
