Percy "Puss" Traub had spent nine of the last ten years playing in Regina (with one year off for Military Service) when the Regina Capitals franchise was purchased and transferred to Portland in 1925. Traub's decision to go with the team to Portland proved to be a wise one when after one year with the Portland Rosebuds the team was bought again, this time by the Chicago Black Hawks.
In 1926-27 Traub made his NHL debut with the Hawks patrolling their blue line for 42 games and chipping in 2 assists in that time. Shortly before his second NHL season Traub was sold to the Detroit Cougars for $7500.
The move proved to be wise for Detroit as Traub played a full season for them and upped his out put to 3 goals and 4 points. After being shut out during his second year in Motown, Traub left the NHL and his playing days behind him.
"Puss" spent the 1929-30 season as a referee but longed for the competitiveness that comes from being a part of a team and returned to Regina the following year to take the coach reigns of the Regina Vics, a local Senior club.
