Biography

Like his Olympic teammates Bill Colvin, Jim Logan, and Paul Knox, forward George Scholes got his start in ice hockey at St. Michael’s College in Toronto, playing with their Buzzers from 1943 through 1946. During this time he won the Memorial Cup, the annual prize for the Canadian men’s junior ice hockey champions, in 1945 and played one game with the St. Michael’s Majors in 1946. He switched teams that year, to the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association, and played with them for his final two seasons at the junior level. He played on his first senior team, the Quebec Aces, from 1948 through 1951 prior to moving even further east and suiting up for two years with the Moncton Hawks in the Maritimes. Upon his return to Ontario in 1953 he joined the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen and won an Allan Cup, the senior level version of the Memorial Cup, with the team in 1955. It was this victory that made them Canada’s representatives in ice hockey at the 1956 Winter Olympics and Scholes took the trip with them to Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. He cut his head during practice a day prior to the commencement of the tournament, an injury that required stitches, but nevertheless played in all eight matches, scored five goals, and came home with a bronze medal. Back in Canada he spent one more season with the Dutchmen prior to transferring to the Windsor Bulldogs in 1957. After only ten games with the team he retired from active play. He died in Mississauga, Ontario in November 2004.
