Moneta-born, Ernie was a standout in the local Juvenile League and with the Junior Combines that played in the Mines League. He then travelled overseas, playing hockey in England and Scotland, where he won numerous all-star awards. He was a member of the 1950 Spengler Cup Team, Diavoli Rosso Neri H.C. which beat two Swiss teams, Sweden and Germany to capture the International Event.
When he returned to Timmins, Senior hockey was going big here, and Ernie was one of the top wingers in the NOHA Senior A League. At one point, he also coached the Columbian Juveniles.
As summers rolled around it was golf course time for Ernie. He won numerous local championships at both courses, from the Labour Day to Club Championships as was a regular contender on the Northern Ontario Golf Association circuit.
