Who was D'Arcy Coulson?

John "D'Arcy" Coulson was a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played one season in the National Hockey League for the Philadelphia Quakers.

Born in Sudbury, Ontario and raised in Ottawa, he first played for the Ottawa Shamrocks of the OCHL in 1927. He played for the Quakers in the 1930–31 season, scoring no goals in the NHL but ranking third in the league in penalty minutes that season.

After leaving hockey, Coulson, whose father owned hotels in Sudbury, Ottawa and Hawkesbury and a golf club in Aylmer, Quebec, joined the family business. The hotel in Sudbury, although no longer owned by the Coulson family, is still named the Coulson Hotel.
