Pete Kelly was a right-winger who played 177 games for three different franchises between 1934 and 1942. In addition to his NHL tenure, he played a few years in the minors and several seasons in a variety of senior leagues.

Born in St. Vital, Manitoba, Kelly played several years of junior and senior with the Montreal Victorias and Montreal AAA. He was signed as a free agent by St. Louis Eagles in 1934 when he was in the midst of a two-year term with the senior Charlottetown Abegweits. Kelly registered 13 points in 25 games for the Eagles but the franchise soon succumbed to the dire economics of the time.

Following the demise of the St. Louis team, Kelly was claimed by the New York Americans in the dispersal draft. He was traded to Detroit two days later for Carl Voss and played a couple seasons there. He formed an effective forward unit with Hec Kilrea and Gord Pettinger and helped the Wings become the first U.S.-based team to win consecutive Stanley Cups in 1936 and 1937. In the first of these triumphs, Kelly was credited with the Cup-clinching goal in the 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on April 11, 1936.

Kelly spent most of 1937-38 with AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets but returned the next year to play 32 NHL games for Detroit. After being traded to the Americans he dressed for eleven games in 1940-41 then seven games when team moved to Brooklyn for one last year in 1941-42. Kelly spent most of that season with the Springfield Indians of the AHL and led the league with 77 points. Following the season he was placed on the circuit's first-all-star team. After leaving the pros, Kelly played senior hockey for several years before retiring in 1953. Some of the stops along the way included the Moncton RCAF, the New Glasgow Bombers, and the University of New Brunswick.
