Known as a scorer in junior, Curry changed his game to a defensive specialist when he went to the Habs, as he knew there was already plenty of offensive talent on Montreal in the 1950s.

He would still chip in the odd goal though, scoring at least 11 goals for six straight seasons with the team. He had a career high 20 goals and 38 points in the 1951-52 season. That season, he also recorded his only ever NHL hat trick.

He also played in five all-star games.

From 1968 to 1978, he was an assistant general manager, during which time the Habs won six more Cups.
