Ty Arbour

Ernest "Ty" Arbour is a long forgotten about hockey player having played way back in the 1920s with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL. In total the Waubaushene, Ontario native played in 207 NHL contests, providing a bit of offense with 28 goals and 56 points in his career. He added 2 goals in 11 Stanley Cup games.

Like his brother Jack, Arbour made a name for himself out west. He was a solid scoring winger for the Edmonton Eskimos of the WCHL and later the Vancouver Maroons. When that league folded he, like so many those great Western players, headed east to the NHL.

After his NHL career came to an end, Arbour briefly returned to Edmonton to continue playing hockey. He would ultimately return home to Waubaushene where he bought 250 acres of farmland. He raised cattle and harvested hay until he sold the farm later in life.
