Steve Black
Left Wing
Number: 19
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 185
Shoots: Left
Born: Mar 31, 1927
Birthplace: Fort William, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by St. Louis (AHL) with Bill Brennan for Fern Gauthier, Cliff Simpson, Ed Nicholson and future considerations on August 29, 1949.
Steve Black was often described as a solid all-round offensive player who believed in taking care of his defensive responsibilities first while waiting for the opportunity to set up plays in the offensive zone. He was a key member of the 1943-44 Port Arthur Flyers that played in the Memorial Cup, where he played the best hockey of the season. In nine games he responded with six goals and eight points. In 1945-46 he scored 17 goals in just eleven games and in the playoffs suited up for the Port Arthur Bruins during their Memorial Cup run.

After another year in northern Ontario, Black joined the Oakland Oaks of the PCHL where he notched 43 goals and 79 points in just 60 games. His solid improvement earned him a spot in the AHL with the St. Louis Flyers for the next two years. The NHL's Detroit Red Wings had closely been monitoring the progress of Black and traded for him in the summer of 1949.

In 1949-50 Black dressed for 69 games and was told to concentrate primarily on his defensive duties, with the Red Wings already abundantly strong offensively with the likes of Howe, Lindsay and Abel leading the way. The season ended in grand style for Detroit, which went on to win the Stanley Cup, beating the New York Rangers in the seventh and deciding game.

In December 1950 Black was dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks where he played the last 39 games of the year. It was the last time he played in the NHL. He closed out a successful career playing two years with the Calgary Stampeders of the WHL, retiring at the end of the 1953-54 campaign.
