Fred Etcher is the only player on the Whitby Dunlop hockey team that was actually born in Whitby. Moving to Oshawa at a very early age, he played with the Oshawa Generals and the Oshawa Truckmen.  As well as having one of the best shots on the team, Fred led the team during its march to the 1957 Allan Cup with 19 goals.

An effortless skater, he played a vital role in penalty killing which, combined with his scoring ability, made him a valuable player for this team.
