Duguid was born on April 4th, 1910, in Bolton, Ontario. At the age of 17, Lorne started his junior hockey career with the Montreal Victorias where he appeared in 31 games contributing 21-0-21 numbers. After his three seasons of juniors, he signed as a free agent to play in the International Hockey League in November of 1930 with the Windsor Bulldogs. The 5′-11″ 185-pound left-winger started his National Hockey League career in the 1931-32 season with the Montreal Maroons and would stay in the organization for a better part of three years going up and down from the NHL to the club’s minor-pro system. With Montreal in 66 games, he posted 4-8-12 numbers.

After his short stay with the Marrons, Lorne was traded to Detriot on October 28th, 1934 for cash and played in only five games for the Redwings before he was on the move again to another NHL franchise. On December 29th after his cup of coffee in the Motor City, the then 25-year-old Duguid was traded to the Boston Bruins for Gene Carrigan who never donned the Brown and Gold sweater for Boston but was in the Bruins minor-pro system with the Boston Cubs.

In two years of service for Boston, Duguid would appear in 31 games posting 2-4-6 as another utility player when needed from the farm team. Lorne would finish his professional NHL career in Boston but his hockey career would carry on in minor hockey until the 1940-41 season in the American Hockey League with the Pittsburgh Hornets. Duguid passed away on March 21st, 1981 at the age of 70. In his six-year NHL career, he would go down in the record books posting 9-15-24 numbers.
