He notably won the Canadian Championship in three successive seasons with three different teams from 1936 to 1938. He was the hero of the 1938 series[1], a five-game series with Timmins Dome Mines.

While he was predominantly a centre half, he could also play just about any position on the forward line, too. In 1942-43, he led the Pacific Coast League in goalscoring[2] (he was the first player to surpass the 20-goal plateau after the league was re-established in 1939-40).

In 1985, Harvey was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame.[3]
