Russell Bowie

The ultimate amateur athlete, Russell Bowie refused to change his beliefs despite the changing hockey world around him. A major star in the first decade of the 20th century, Bowie would refuse all overtures to take pay of any kind; despite the sport moving towards that direction. He was an incredible stickhandler who led his league in scoring five times and averaged two and a half goals per game throughout his career. Bowie may have been selected in the second Hall of Fame class, but easily belonged in the first one.
