Biography

Walker, in the upper right corner, with the 1916-17 Seattle Metropolitans.

Born in Silver Mountain, Ontario Walker grew up in Port Arthur, Ontario where his parents had lived since 1870. He played with various Port Arthur teams in the New Ontario Hockey League (NOHL). On March 16, 1911 he and teammate Eddie Carpenter played for the Port Arthur Hockey Club against the Ottawa Senators of the NHA for the Stanley Cup. Carpenter and Walker each scored a goal but the Port Arthur team lost 4-13. For the 1911-12 season future Hockey Hall of Fame members Harry Cameron and Frank Nighbor joined the Port Arthur team from Pembroke, Ontario. During the 1912-13 season, Walker and Carpenter played for the Moncton Victorias of the MaPHL.

Walker helped the 1914 Toronto Blueshirts, 1917 Seattle Metropolitans, and 1925 Victoria Cougars all win Stanley Cups in his career. Teammates on all three Cup winning teams were goaltender Hap Holmes and forward Frank Foyston. Walker is one of only 11 players in Stanley Cup history to win the Cup with three or more different teams.[1]

Walker was a prominent two-way player who could make a difference at both ends of the rink, and he is often credited with introducing the hook check (a defensive technique in which the player sweeps his stick low to the ice in an effort to remove the puck from an opponent's stick) to the game of hockey.[2] Walker's forward teammate on the 1911-12 Port Arthur Lake City team Frank Nighbor was another defensive specialist during the same era who excelled at both the poke check and the sweep check.[3]

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1960.[4]

After his playing career Walker stayed on the West Coast where he was active as an ice hockey coach, and he finally settled down in Seattle where he died on February 16, 1950 at an age of 61.
