Charlie Mason

Long before anyone had ever heard of Charles Manson, there was a pint sized winger named Charlie Mason speeding down the wings in the National Hockey League.

Given the close resemblance to the infamous serial killer itt is an unfortunate name to have. Fortunately Charlie Mason had a nickname he was often better known by - Dutch Mason.

Dutch, a native of Seaforth, Ontario who starred as an amateur in Saskatchewan, played with the New York Rangers for the better parts of two seasons - 1934/35 and 1935/36. Otherwise he bounced around the minor leagues with brief NHL appearances with Toronto and Chicago. In 93 total NHL games he scored 7 goals and 18 assists for 25 points.

Mason returned to Saskatoon after his hockey career came to end. He opened a hotel.
