Playing career

March was a right winger who played for seventeen seasons, all with the Chicago Black Hawks, from 1928–29 to 1944–45. During that span, he played 759 games, scoring 153 goals and 230 assists, for 383 points. Since the Black Hawks were not an overly successful team during most of those 17 years, March only played in a total of 25 playoff games. But he made the most of those 25 games by scoring 7 goals, 12 assists for 19 points. He also scored the first ever goal at the Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931, he kept the puck and dropped it at the Gardens final game in 1999.
