Reg Sinclair was born in Lachine, Quebec on March 6th 1925 and spent five years playing for McGill University starting in 1944. Sinclair, right-winger who also played some centre enjoyed his best season with McGill in 1948-49, his last with the school. Sinclair led the league with 21 goals and 35 points in just 12 games. In 1949 he moved on to play Senior hockey with the Sherbrooke Saints. In 56 games with the Saints he scored 15 goals and 46 points. In the playoffs he raised his game to another level, leading the league with 15 goals and 30 points in 22 post-season matches. His impressive production caught the attention of the New York Rangers who brought him onboard in 1950.

In Manhattan Sinclair made an immediate impact scoring 18 goals as a rookie and playing in the NHL All-Star Game. The following year Sinclair hit the 20-goal plateau and once again represented the Broadway Blueshirts at the All-Star game. Despite his scoring prowess, his time in New York was over. The Rangers traded Sinclair and Johnny Morrison to the Detroit Red Wings on August 18th 1952 in exchange for All-Star defenseman Leo Reise, Jr.

With the Red Wings Sinclair was unable to duplicate his previous production and only scored 11 goals and 23 points. Sinclair played three playoff games with Detroit and contributed 1 goal. The playoff contests ended up being Sinclair's last games as a professional player as he retired following them.
