Hazen McAndrew was a rugged, hard-hitting defenceman who made his mark in hockey on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
Hazen started playing hockey at an early age and advanced through the minor hockey leagues of the City to the 1936 -37 British Consol Juniors of Toronto. He signed a 'C' form which bound him to the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, however he never played in the Leafs' chain. Instead, he accepted an offer to go to England where he enjoyed great success with the Harringay Greyhounds of the British Ice Hockey Federation.
He returned to North America and divided the 1939-40 season between the Ottawa Senators and Atlantic City Seagulls. His 1940-41 season was spent with Niagara Falls Seniors and in February 1941, he turned pro with the Springfield Indians. His only N.H.L. experience was a short stint with the Brooklyn Americans. His pre-war playing days concluded with further tours of duty with Springfield, Hershey, Philadelphia, and back to Niagara Falls.
Hazen played for the Navy team during his service with the Royal Canadian Navy from
1943-1946. Hazen concluded his professional career in 1949 with Vancouver of the Pacific Coast League. After his playing days ended, he coached minor hockey teams for several years.
Hazen McAndrew was a gifted athlete who gave his best at all times and who won a well- deserved reputation as an outstanding and extremely valuable team player.
