Forward Art Stratton played briefly for five different NHL clubs in the 50s and 60s. He was a dangerous playmaker who attained much success in the minors.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Stratton played junior with the local Barons of the MJHL. In 1957-58 he was a solid rookie pro with 23 goals for the WHL's Winnipeg Warriors. Following the season he was named the Prairie Division's top rookie. In 1959-60 he played 18 games for the New York Rangers before he was demoted to the minors. Stratton's best year during this period came in 1962-63 when he led the AHL in assists, helped the Buffalo Bisons win the Calder Cup and was named to the league's first all-star team.

During the early 60s Stratton played a few games for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Black Hawks. He also dominated the AHL and continually led the league in assists. In 1965 he also won his first Les Cunningham award as AHL MVP. In June 1967 Stratton was picked by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Expansion Draft and scored 16 goals in 58 games before he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. During his last eight years as a pro he excelled in the WHL and AHL before retiring in 1976. His best year was 1974 when he led the AHL with 71 assists and won his second Les Cunningham Award.
