Toronto Maple Leafs deliver tragic news on a passing to the media

Published April 23, 2024 at 4:40 PM

Former Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Ed Chadwick has passed away at 90, leaving behind a legacy.

Chadwick made headlines by playing 140 consecutive regular season games for the Maple Leafs, starting every game in the 1956-57 and 1957-58 seasons.

Initially a backup for Harry Lumley, Chadwick took over as the full-time starter after Lumley's departure.

Despite his efforts, the Maple Leafs didn't make the playoffs during Chadwick's tenure. His role diminished when the team acquired Johnny Bower, and Chadwick eventually moved on to the Boston Bruins before retiring.

Although he never won the Stanley Cup as a player, Chadwick earned five rings as a scout with the Edmonton Oilers in the 1980s, contributing to three Cup victories.

We are saddened to learn of the passing of former Leafs netminder Ed Chadwick. Ed played in 140 consecutive games in net for the Leafs, and is the last Leafs goalie to play in every game in a season. He played five seasons for Toronto, winning 57 games. Our condolences are with his friends and family.
Said the Maple Leafs on X.

Chadwick's record of 140 consecutive games with the Maple Leafs won't be forgotten, and is likely to remain unchallenged in hockey history.

Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and the Toronto Maple Leafs community.
