Leroy Goldsworthy

* The FIRST ever MN BORN native to play in NHL was Leroy, Goldsworthy (no relation to Bill Goldsworthy) from Two Harbors, MN in the 1928-1929 season.  Leroy moved to Edmonton, Alberta when he was 3 years old.  The FIRST ever MN developed player to play in the NHL was Robert Bob “Red” Hall in the 1925-1926 season.  Bob was born in Oak Park, Illinois but grew up in Duluth, MN and attended Duluth Central High School from 1915-1917 (freshman - junior H.S. years) before moving with his family to Brooklyn N.Y. where he graduated.
