Hank Damore

Comedians Abbott and Costello were the hottest act in Hollywood in the 1940s. So when the New York Rangers found Lou Costello lookalike Hank Damore in there own backyard, they were quick to sign him up and promote his resemblance if not his hockey ability.

Not that Damore lacked playing ability. He was starring with the New York Rovers of the Eastern Hockey League where he starred as an artistic and speed forward despite his short and pudgy stature. He was a fan favorite with the Rovers, so the Rangers were willing to give him a shot.

Damore only got a four game try-out in the big leagues. He scored a single goal.
