George Forgie Professional Ice hockey Player
George Forgie (born February 24, 1948 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is a former professional Canadian ice hockey player. He was drafted 1st (3rd overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1965 NHL Amateur Draft. Forgie played Defence for the Flin Flon Bombers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in the 1964–65 season before being drafted by the Red Wings in 1965. The Wings felt he needed more time to develop and so he would continue to play in numerous minor leagues and would unfortunately never make it into the NHL. After playing another season for the Bombers after the draft, Forgie moved to the WCHL to play a season for Winnipeg and then moved into the EHL where he would continue his journeyman status. He played for Jacksonville Rockets, Johnstown Jets, Long Island Ducks, and finally the Jersey Devils in 1970. Forgie played his final days of hockey with the Transcona Chargers of the Central Senior Hockey League in 1977.
