25. Cooney Weiland

The first season that saw forward passing allowed in the National Hockey League was by far and away the best of Cooney Weiland’s career.  In that, his sophomore campaign in hockey, Weiland led the NHL in scoring with 43 Goals 73 Points and destroyed Howie Morenz’ record of 51.  That season he would also win his first Stanley Cup.
