Harold Alfred "Hack" Simpson - Born June 26, 1910 in Winnipeg, Manitoba – Died March 30, 1978 was a Canadian ice Hockey defenceman.

Simpson began his career with the Winnipeg Pilgrims of the city's Junior Hockey League in 1927, playing with them for two seasons.

Simpson then played for the University of Manitoba's junior squad for 1929-1930 season.

For his first senior season he joined the Winnipeg Hockey Club and, in 1931, captured the Allan Cup championship with his team.

The Winnipeg Hockey Club (Winnipegs), represented Canada at the 1932 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Simpson played in five games and scored six goals in the position of forward, a change decided by coach Jack Hughes to capitalize on Simpson's scoring ability. Simpson scored in the final game vs the USA team, which helped the team in a 2-2 tie game and Gold Medal championship for Canada.

Harold “Hack” Simpson was the flag bearer for Canada in Lake Placid.

The next season in 1932-33, Simpson was signed by the National Hockey League / NHL Montreal Maroons, but was sent to the Windsor Bulldogs of the International Hockey League / IHL to gain pro experience.

He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2004 as a member of the 1931 Winnipegs.
