Roy Conacher

The final entrant in the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Veteran’s Category, Roy Conacher won the Art Ross Trophy in 1949.  Conacher was seemingly born to score, as he led the NHL in goals in his rookie year, and would finish second four other times.  He was part of two Stanley Cup wins in Boston and like so many others, had his prime taken away by the second World War.  It is likely that the delay to Conacher’s delayer to the Hall of Fame, may have been due to a perceived one dimensional nature as he was never known for his defensive skills, nor his overall playmaking efforts.  Still, anyone who finishes in the top two in goals in five different seasons cannot seem out of place in the Hall of Fame.
