Born in Potlach, Idaho on November 21, 1930 Guyle "Guy" Fielder spent parts of four seasons in the NHL during his 20-year hockey career. He played three years of junior hockey in Canada and made his NHL debut during his fourth. While with the Lethbridge Native Sons, Fielder suited up with the Chicago Black Hawks for four games.

The next season, Fielder joined the New Westminster Royals of the Pacific Hockey League and was named the Rookie of the Year. In September 1952, the Black Hawks traded Fielder to the Detroit Red Wings, and though he spent the entire regular-season in the minors (where he won rookie of the year in the American Hockey League), the Wings summoned him for a four-game stint during the playoffs.

Almost exactly a year to the day that Red Wings acquired Fielder he was on the move again, this time off to the Boston Bruins. Again, he didn't see any regular-season action, but come playoff time the Bruins gave him the call and he played in two contests for them.

For the next three years, Fielder lit up the Western Hockey League, collecting All-Star accolades and piling up points. His hard work in minor pro paid off and he was given another chance at the big leagues. On June 15, 1957 the Bruins dealt Fielder back to the Detroit Red Wings where he played six games that season on a line with Gordie Howe. With him and Howe both being the type of player that wants to control and carry the puck, the chemistry wasn't right. Fielder was released.

They would end up being the last games he'd play as an NHL player. Fielder didn't register a point in the nine regular-season and six playoff games he played in the NHL, but he was very prolific in his minor pro career, which continued for many years after his second Red Wing stint was over.

Fielder played 15 more seasons, almost exclusively in the Western Hockey League, seven of those years he led the league in points and ten of those campaigns he was the top assist man in the league. By the time he retired in 1973 at age 42, he had multiple MVPs, Most Gentlemanly Player awards, and All-Star selections to show for his highly successful WHL career.
