Benny Francis Woit (born January 7, 1928 in Fort William, Ontario) was a National Hockey League defenceman of the 1950s.

Playing careerEdit

Woit made his presence known as a junior while playing for the Port Arthur Flyers and Port Arthur West End Bruins of the Thunder Bay Junior Hockey League and the St. Michael's Majors of the OHA. He won the Memorial Cup in 1947 with St. Mike's.

He began playing for the Indianapolis Capitals of the AHL in the 1948–49 season. The Detroit Red Wings promoted him in 1951, and his defensive play would help them secure the Stanley Cup in 1952, 54, and 55. Woit was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks following the 1954–55 season but never produced as he did with the Red Wings. He went on to play in the AHL and later the EHL, for the Clinton Comets as both a player and a successful head coach. In 334 NHL games Benny Woit recorded 7 goals and 26 assists for 33 points.
