Professional Hockey Player. For eleven seasons (1942 to 1944, 1945 to 1954), he played at the left-wing and defense positions in the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins and Chicago Black Hawks. He began his career in the sport with the Saskatoon Jr. Quakers, before marking his NHL debut with the New York Rangers at age eighteen in 1943. Following two years of scarce playing-time with Detroit and Montreal, Lynn was acquired by Toronto, where he formed an effective line with Ted Kennedy and Howie Meeker referred to as "the K-L-M line"; they were a vital part of the Maple Leafs' success in capturing three consecutive Stanley Cup titles (1947 to 1949). He concluded his NHL career in 1954 while with the Black Hawks, appearing in 327 total regular season games, with 49 goals and 76 assists; he earned NHL All-Star status three-times (1947 to 1949). Lynn has the distinction of playing on all six original NHL franchises. He extended his playing career with the Saskatoon Quakers of the WHL, and would later serve as a longtime minor league coach.
