Birth in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, a rich agricultural area 45 miles west of Winnipeg, gives just a faint clue to how Ron Lyons was called “Peaches” … Skated for the NMHL International Falls AC in 1926-27, the ASHL Medicine Hat Tigers in 1927-28, the WKHL Trail Smoke Eaters in 1928-29, and the PCHL Portland Buckaroos in 1929-30 ...

Coach Cooper Smeaton granted Lyons the starting spot as left wing for the next five games after that ... Traded back to the Boston Bruins on February 13, 1931 for cash ...
