Harvey Jackson played 13 regular season and 13 playoff games with the Toronto Marlboros between the 1927-28 and 1928-29 hockey seasons, scoring and impressive twenty nine (29) goals and fourteen (14) assists with the team.

Jackson was quickly signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs where he joined his Marlboro teammate Charlie Conacher and became part of the infamous “Kid Line” of the 1930s with Conacher and Joe Primeau, becoming the youngest player in the National Hockey League (NHL) at the time.  During his first game with the Leafs, he knocked down his idol, the great Howie Morenz who told him “You’ll do!”.  It was during his time with the Toronto Maple Leafs where he was given his nickname from the team’s Trainer Tim Daly.

In 1936, Jackson played a season on a line with his brother Art Jackson.

In 1971, Jackson was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1998, Jackson was listed as number 55 on the Hockey News’ 100 Greatest Players of All Time list.

Jackson is interred at Park Lawn Cemetary in Toronto.
