Winnipeg

Professional Hockey Player. For four seasons (1938 to 1942), he played at the center position in the National Hockey League with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Langelle began his association in the sport during 1935, with the Winnipeg Monarchs of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League; he was a member of their 1936-1937 squad which captured the Memorial Trophy. Following a two year stint (1937 to 1939) with the Syracuse Stars of the I-AHL, he made his NHL debut towards the conclusion of the 1938-1939 season, appearing in 2 games with the Maple Leafs' team that reached the Stanley Cup Finals; he appeared in 11 games, scoring 1 goal and contributed 2 assists for that postseason. During the 1941-1942 Stanley Cup Finals, Toronto found themselves down three games to 0 against Detroit. The Maple Leafs would rally to win the next four contests, culminated by Langelle's winning goal in game seven to preserve the Stanley Cup title for Toronto, in what is perhaps one of the greatest comebacks in sports history. It also marked Langelle's final game in the NHL. During World War II, he served with the Royal Canadian Air Force, and following his return home, resumed his career with the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL, Saint John Beavers and Pilot Mound Pioneers; he retired from hockey in 1954 and worked at a brewery for 30 years. He was inducted into the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame. (bio by: C.S.)
