Billy Burch

American born, yet Canadian raised, Billy Burch was the second ever Hart Trophy winner and the second ever (though in the third year of its existence as Frank Nighbor won the first two) Lady Byng Trophy winner. Burch would become a consistent producer, primarily for the New York Americans where they marketed to the hilt his American birth certificate. However, as Burch never won a Stanley Cup (or even sniffed it), his delay to the Hockey Hall of Fame was understandable as he played in a National Hockey League where there were only a handful of teams.
