George Edward "Chief" Armstrong (born on July 6, 1930, in Skead, Ontariomarker, Canadamarker), is a retired professional Irish-Algonquin ice hockey player.

Playing career

Armstrong played professionally from 1949 until 1971 (including the 1950–51 and 1951–52 seasons in the AHL). Nicknamed "The Chief" due to his native heritage, Armstrong played for the Toronto Maple Leafs for twenty-one seasons and served as the team's captain for eleven of them, the longest such tenure in Leafs' history. Thus, while Armstrong was never regarded as a true star his steady leadership contributed to a huge string of success. Armstrong scored an empty net goal in game six of the 1967 Stanley Cup playoffs to clinch the Cup victory over the Montreal Canadiens. The Leafs have not won the Cup since. He is currently a scout for the Leafs.
