Right winger Leroy Goldsworthy was a fine two-way player on six different NHL clubs in the 20s and 30s. He was a tireless worker whose strength was consistency.

The native of Two Harbors, Minnesota played senior hockey with the Edmonton Victorias and skated with the city's WHL entry in 1925-26. He then spent three years in the Can-Am League before joining the New York Rangers for one playoff game in 1929. Goldsworthy was a solid worker for the Blueshirts in 1929-30 when he played 44 games.

During the early 30s he skated extensively in the IAHL but also played part time with the Detroit Falcons/Red Wings and the Chicago Black Hawks. During the 1934 playoffs he was an important checker when the team won the Stanley Cup. The next year he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens as part of a blockbuster deal that also featured Howie Morenz and Lionel Conacher. That year Goldsworthy hit the 20-goal mark the only time in his career while playing with George Mantha and Armand Mondou. He later suited up for the Boston Bruins and New York Americans where he was a fine defensive player. Following his last NHL season in 1938-39, the veteran forward spent two years in the AHL and one in the AHA before retiring in 1942.
