Professional hockey career

Warren Russell Oatman (February 19, 1905 – October 25, 1964) - was a Canadian professional ice hockey player. Oatman played 121 games in the National Hockey League with the Detroit Cougars, Montreal Maroons and New York Rangers. His brother Eddie Oatman also played professional ice hockey. Russell had only one son Gerry Oatman as well as three grand children Debbie, Gerry Jr. and his professional hockey playing brothers namesake Eddie Oatman.
The end of Oatman's hockey career came on the night of March 13, 1930. While travelling with Niagara Falls Cataracts team-mate Steve Yankoski for a game, the car went off the road to avoid a head-on collision, but crashed into a hydro pole. Oatman suffered a broken left leg, which required surgery and a permanent steel plate. He would work in Toronto for a pharmaceutical company, and coach minor league hockey teams.
