Biography

Ice hockey goaltender Norbert “Stuffy” Mueller graduated from St. Andrews College, an all-boys college in Ontario, before attending the University of Toronto and joining their ice hockey team as a member of several intercollegiate championship-winning teams. During the 1926-1927 season he was a member of the Toronto Graduates, the amateur senior men’s hockey team that took the Allan Cup that year and was given the chance to represent Canada at the 1928 Winter Olympics. In his sole appearance, in the match against Great Britain, the team managed a score of 14-0, with Mueller blocking every single shot and helping his team win a gold medal in the tournament that year. After the Olympics, he played for several seasons with the amateur Toronto National Sea Fleas of the Ontario Hockey Association, including an Allan Cup victory in 1932. After retiring from hockey, he had a career as an insurance writer and remained athletically active in golf and curling until his death from a heart attack in 1956.
