Defenseman Eddie Bush had a very busy 13 year career suiting up for 14 different clubs and coaching one other in that time. Bush played his Junior hockey in Guelph, Ontario, not far from his hometown of Collingwood then turned professional in 1938.

That season saw him spent time with the Kansas City Greyhounds, the Pittsburgh Hornets and the National Hockey League's Detroit Red Wings. With the Wings, Bush played eight scoreless games. The next two years Bush spent back in the minors but he returned to Motown during the 1941-42 campaign. This time the Wings used him 18 times and Bush responded with four goals and 10 points. That spring in the playoffs he added 12 more games to his resume, and he scored seven more points. Though the Wings and Maple Leafs battled to a seventh game in the Stanley Cup finals, they ultimately were defeated.

The next three years Bush spent playing for Royal Canadian Air Force teams in Toronto and Dartmouth before taking all of the 1945-46 season off to fulfill his military obligations.

Upon his return to hockey, the Red Wings sold his rights to St. Louis of the American Hockey League, but he did last long, bouncing to seven different teams over the next four campaigns, despite being named to the Second All-Star Team in 1948.

In 1950 Bush retired from the game and took the coaching reigns of his hometown's club, the Collingwood Shipbuilders. The following year he returned to the ice for nine games with the Quebec Aces before retiring for good.

To this day the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena operates in Collingwood, Ontario.
