James Baker Bartlett (born May 27, 1932) is a Canadian former ice hockey left winger, principally for the New York Rangers.
Bartlett's career was mainly played in the American Hockey League for the Baltimore Clippers and Providence Reds, over twenty years. He spent three years with the Boston Bruins and one with the New York Rangers, playing a total of 191 games in the NHL. He set an AHL record in 1958 when he scored two goals five seconds apart. He almost had his career end in 1963 when he was hit in his eye with a stick, however, he was back playing within months.
Close to the end of his professional hockey career, Bartlett kept his skills sharp by playing with the National Brewers, a Baltimore area amateur team that was sponsored by the National Brewing Company and National Bohemian. He returned to the pro level to score 8 goals in 11 games for the Baltimore Clippers during the end of the 1971-72 season, and then played another full 72-game season with Clippers in 1972-73.
In 1974, Bartlett brought his professional hockey career to a close and then enjoyed four more seasons of amateur hockey in the Baltimore-Washington area with the Brewers. During the five seasons that Bartlett played with the Brewers, he worked as a driver for the National Brewing Company in Baltimore.
Bartlett moved from Baltimore to Tampa, Florida in 1978. Making use of his experience as a driver, he became a full-time assistant as an advisor and driver for George Steinbrenner.American Hockey League record for fastest two goals scored (1958)
