BORN ABOUT 1935, Cavanagh was netminder for the VIHA Pirates IHC when Clarrie King was out in the early-1950s. He won two Goodall Cups in 1961 and 1962 representing Victoria.
He represented Australia at the 1962 B-Pool World Championships, the 2nd Australian Ice Hockey World Championship Team, when Australia won their first international game in history. He played all five games for the tournament because New South Wales keeper, Roddy Bruce, was ruled ineligible to play for Australia.
