    • Goldie Cochrane was born in Berlin in 1882. His hockey career started in Berlin in the 1890s. In 1900 he joined the Berlin Senior team and later the Senior team in Galt. He was soon recognized as one of the game's finest players.

      Those were the days of seven man hockey, with only two spares allowed, making it sixty minutes of action for most of the players.

      In 1907 he left the area to play for Houghton in the Iron Mines Professional League in Northern Michigan. His hockey career ended when he joined the Canadian Army in 1914. He was wounded overseas and returned to Canada in 1918.

      He located in Exeter, Ontario where for several years he coached teams in the Ontario Hockey Association.
