Marvin Palmer Morris "Cyclone, Cy" Wentworth (January 24, 1904 – October 10, 1982)[1] was a Canadian hockey player, born in Grimsby, Ontario. He played his first National Hockey League game in 1927 for the Chicago Black Hawks.

Playing career[edit]

In 1931–32, Wentworth, who had become the picture of defensive efficiency, was named the team's captain. Near the beginning of the 1932–33 season, he was traded to the Montreal Maroons. In Montreal, Cy won his first and only Stanley Cup when his Maroons defeated Toronto in the 1935 finals after eliminating his old teammates from Chicago. Wentworth was Montreal's leading point-getter in those playoffs with three goals and two assists in seven games.

Wentworth was traded again just before the Maroons folded in 1938. He didn't have to move far to continue his career, however, as he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens. He played two seasons with the Habs before retiring in 1940, after which he moved to Toronto and became involved in a variety of business interests.
