10. Lorne Chabot (1927-1928)

  • 80 Games played, 41-25-14 with 21 shutouts, 1.61 Goals Against Average

A veteran of World War I and a former police officer, Chabot led the Port Arthur Bearcats to back-to-back Allan Cup championships in 1925 and 1926. In 1926, he caught the eye of a young Conn Smythe who signed him for the New York Rangers.

Lorne Chabot’s first game as Ranger was Nov. 20, 1926. His record that season was 22-9-5. The following year he won 44 games as the Rangers went on to win the Stanley Cup. During that final, he suffered a minor eye injury. The Rangers management was concerned that he wouldn’t recover from the eye injury so in the following offseason he was traded to Toronto.

Chabot has also been credited with the modern day goalie blocker. Unfortunately, Chabot was never inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and passed away in 1946 of kidney disease.
