Born in Stratford, Ontario, he and his brother Norm played together in junior ice hockey with the Oshawa Generals during the years when the Generals dominated the Ontario Hockey League, winning championships with them in both 1938–39 and 1939–40. In 1939–40, Jud led the league with 25 goals and 44 points before signing as a free agent with the Red Wings in the NHL after the season. During World War II. Jud played for the Red Wings in parts of three seasons (1942–43, 1943–44 and 1944–45), scoring 15 goals and 13 assists during the regular season and also participating in all 14 playoff games in his third season (2 goals, 1 assist) while forming a line with Syd Howe and Mud Bruneteau.
