Wilfred (Wilf) Cude
Wilfred (Wilf) Cude
Goaltender
Number: 1
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 146
Catches: Left
Born: Jul 4, 1910
Birthplace: Barry, United Kingdom
Acquired: Loaned to Detroit by Montreal for balance of 1933-34 season for cash on January 2, 1934.
Wilf Cude had a nine-year NHL career playing with five different teams. Cude, who was born in Wales, learned to play hockey as a youngster growing up in Winnipeg before joining the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Senior Amateur Hockey Association in 1929.

Cude's tenure in the league began in 1930-31 with the Philadelphia Quakers, playing in 29 games. The following year, he played two games in goal for Boston and one for Chicago, with the balance of his season being played in the CAHL with the Boston Cubs. The entire 1932-33 season was spent in the CAHL with the Philadelphia Arrows.

In 1933-34, Cude began the year with the Detroit Red Wings but he finished the season in Montreal, with the Canadiens. The last seven years of Cude's NHL career were spent with the Canadiens.

Cude once had the unique distinction of being the NHL's spare goaltender, playing for whatever team required a backup. He may also have been the lightest goalie in league history, tipping the scales at no more than 130 pounds.

Following his hockey career, Cude acquired private ownership of the distributing agency in the Rouyn-Noranda area for British American Oil. Cude died after a lengthy illness on May 5, 1968 at the age of 57.
