Larry "Sam" Kennedy: A right wing who played 27 games for the Capitals in 1946-47, totaling three goals and three assists. He split that season -- his first full pro season -- with the Caps and the Omaha Knights of the USHL, the team that was essentially the Red Wings' "AA" farm team. He would play three more years in the USHL and Pacific Coast Hockey Leagues, and then play a couple more years of senior hockey. A native of Brantford, Ontario, he was born in 1921.
