Reginald Stewart Abbott[1] (born February 4, 1930) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. Abbott played three games in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Montreal Canadiens.

Personal life[edit]

As a youth in Winnipeg, Abbott was an outstanding all-round athlete. He played baseball as the second baseman for the provincial champion Rosedales in Manitoba. He also was a near-scratch golfer and a good lacrosse player before dedicating his career to ice hockey in his teens.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Abbott began his professional career with the Victoria Cougars where he spent four seasons. During this time, he played three games in the National Hockey League in 1952–53 for the Montreal Canadiens. During those three games, he did not score any points nor did he earn any penalty minutes.[3] Apart from three games in the American Hockey League with the Pittsburgh Hornets, Abbott would spend the next five seasons playing senior hockey for the Windsor Bulldogs. Afterwards he would play sparingly with the Winnipeg Maroons and the Clinton Comets before retiring. He played for the Canadian National Team in the 1965 World Championships which finished fourth.[2]
