John Proctor "Jack" Darragh (December 4, 1890 – June 28, 1924) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player. Darragh played the forward position for the Ottawa Senators in the National Hockey League (NHL) and its predecessor the National Hockey Association (NHA). Darragh was a member of four Stanley Cup championship teams (1911, 1920, 1921, 1923) and a NHA championship team (1915). Jack was the brother of NHL hockey player Harold Darragh.

Playing career

Darragh made a meteoric jump from the amateur ranks to professional hockey, going from playing with all of Ottawa Stewartons (OCSHL), Fort Coulonge (Pontiac Hockey League) and Ottawa Cliffsides (IPAHU) in three different amateur leagues in 1909–10 to earn a place with the Ottawa Senators of the NHA at the beginning of the 1910–11 campaign when Horace Gaul got injured against the Montreal Canadiens.[1]

Darragh played his entire professional career with the Ottawa Senators. He was a big part of their success, winning four Stanley Cups; in 1911, 1920, 1921 and 1923. Darragh's skillset included a particular penchant for clutch scoring; he potted all three game-winning goals against Seattle in 1920,[2] and in the 1921 Final against Vancouver, he scored both goals in a 2–1 deciding game victory.

He retired after that Cup win, but returned after one season to play for the Cup-winning team of 1922–23, the third in four seasons, all with Darragh in the lineup.

He retired after the 1923–24 season and died a few months later due to peritonitis, which was the result of a ruptured appendix.[3]
