Harold "Dud" James
Allan Cup Champion 1933 and 1934
One of the cleverest centremen ever in Moncton’s lengthy Hockey history, Harold (Dud) James started his career in Sunny Brae.
The stick-handling and playmaking wizard was a star with the legendary Moncton Hawks who won Allan Cup national senior championships in 1932-33 and 1933-34.
James played on two other Maritime senior title-winners -- Bathurst Papermakers (1928-29) and Dalhousie Rangers (1931-32).
James later coached the Moncton Maroons to three consecutive Maritime senior titles (1936-38) as well as the Glace Bay Miners, Moncton Eagles, Saint John Beavers, Moncton Hawks and Sydney Millionaires.
He was manager of the Moncton Stadium and the Dud James Arena was named in his honor.
James passed away in 1971 at age 69.
