A player for the Cleveland Indians in 1929.

The Cleveland Indians was a professional ice hockey team in Cleveland, Ohio, that played home games in the Elysium Arena. In 1929, the Kitchener Dutchmen International Hockey League (IHL) franchise was transferred to Cleveland. In the summer of 1934, the team was renamed the Cleveland Falcons, and under that name became a charter member of the International-American Hockey League--today's American Hockey League. Subsequently, the team was renamed the Cleveland Barons for the 1937–38 season, a name they kept until 1973.
