Alexander "Mine Boy" Levinsky (February 2, 1910 – September 1, 1990) was an American-born Canadian professional ice hockey Defenseman who played nine seasons in the National Hockey League for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers. He was given his unusual nickname because it was noted that his father, who would attend his son's games, would shout: "That's mine boy."[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Levinsky was born in Syracuse, New York, grew up in Toronto, Ontario, and was Jewish.[3][4] He starred in baseball, basketball, hockey, and football before he concentrated on hockey.[5] Before playing hockey professionally, he played baseball with St. George's; he later played hockey with the Toronto Marlboros.[2]

He played 367 NHL games, in which he scored 19 goals and had 49 assists for 68 career points.[6] He had 2 goals and 1 assist in 37 playoff games.[6]
