Harold "Mush" March (October 18, 1908 – January 9, 2002) was a Canadian ice hockey player in the National Hockey League. He is best remembered for scoring the game-winning goal in the second overtime of Game Four of the 1934 Stanley Cup Finals to lift the Chicago Black Hawks to a 3-1 series triumph.

Playing career[edit]

March was a right winger who played for seventeen seasons, all with the Chicago Black Hawks, from 1928–29 to 1944–45. During that span, he played 759 games, scoring 153 goals and 230 assists, for 383 points. Since the Black Hawks were not an overly successful team during most of those 17 years, March only played in a total of 45 playoff games, but he made the most of those 45 games by scoring 12 goals, 15 assists for 27 points. He also scored the first ever goal at the Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931. He kept the puck and dropped it at the Gardens final game in 1999.
