Samuel "Porky" Levine - Born May 15, 1908 in Toronto, Ontario - Died 1970 was a Canadian Goaltender.

Well-known for the then-new technique of falling on the ice in front of the goal, "Porky" was threatened with fines and suspensions from the league.

Proud of his Jewish heritage but modest about his abilities, Levine used interviews to talk about other Jewish athletes and the Jewish community in general.

Levine won 2 Harry F. Sinclair Trophy championships as American Hockey Association / AHA winners in 1933 and 1934 with the Kansas City Pla-Mors / Kansas City Greyhounds.

I am working on a book about Levine. He was actually born in Russia. The family moved to Northern Ontario where he played his Junior hockey before signing with the Cougars as a spare goalie.
