Goalie Arthur “Jakie” Nash was a member of the Port Arthur Bearcats in 1935, the year that the team was runner-up in the Allan Cup, which earned him a trip to represent Canada at the 1936 Winter Olympics’ ice hockey event and, as a member of that team, he won a silver medal. After the Olympics he moved to England and played for the English National League’s Wembley Monarchs from 1936 through 1938. He later returned to Canada and played at least one full season (1941-1942) with the Kimberley Dynamiters of the Alberta-British Columbia Senior League. He was still playing internationally as late as 1948. He was inducted into the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in 1987, as a member of his Olympic team.
