Waldon Kennedy was one of the best homegrown hockey talents in Nova Scotia. A native of Kentville, Kennedy played for the Kentville Wildcats in the 1926-1927 season. At that point the Wildcats were the Maritime Champions and rated as one of the best amateur clubs in Canada. The fan support for this team was so great that there had to be three trains going to Kentville for every game, just to accommodate the numbers.
Kennedy was always a standout in the Nova Scotia playoffs. The high-scoring forward would really shine against his rival teams of New Glasgow and Truro. He possessed superior speed and an accurate shot. Although he was never one to back down from his opponents, he was a clean player who held the respect of his rivals.
With his incredible talent, he was offered many tryouts with professional teams, but remained an amateur throughout his career. Waldon Kennedy was always a fan favourite and continued to be a star with the Wildcats until the late 1930’s.
