CareerEdit

Conacher developed an early reputation as a strong performer early in his professional career. Conacher, along with linemates Joe Primeau and Harvey Jackson, created what was known as the "Kid Line" of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1930's. This line was the key to Maple Leaf successes in the decade, as the team went on to win the Stanley Cup once in 1932, as well as finish as runner-up six times. Conacher was known early on in his career as a strong power forward, and hence earned the nickname "The Big Bomber," due to his size, powerful shot and goal scoring. Conacher was able to lead the National Hockey League in goals a total of five times throughout his career, as well as lead the league in total scoring twice.

Conacher was the brother of fellow hall of famers Lionel Conacher and Roy Conacher. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961 and, later, to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 1975. In 1998, he was ranked number 36 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.

Charlie Conacher died in 1967 and was buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto. The Charlie Conacher Humanitarian Award, also known as the Charlie Conacher Memorial Trophy, was an award named in honor of Conacher. This award was given out to the NHL player who best exhibited outstanding humanitarian and public services contributions. The award was given out from 1968, which was the year following Conacher's death, until 1984.
