Wilf Loughlin

Wilf Loughlin was the younger but bigger brother of fellow PCHA star Clem. Wilf was 6'2" 200lbs and played both on the left wing and on defense.

Wilf's followed in his brother's footsteps by playing senior hockey in Winnipeg before joining his brother with the PCHA's Victoria Cougars. Both Wilf and Clem were second team all stars in 1921.

By 1923 Wilf was traded away from Victoria and his brother, but to the NHL. Sold to the Toronto St. Pats (later named Maple Leafs), Loughlin was used sparingly in the 1923-24 season. He only participated in 14 games, scoring no points in limited ice time.

Loughlin played parts of three more seasons with minor leagues in Regina, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Moose Jaw.

Wilf Loughlin died on June 25th, 1966.
