Eddie Gerard
Had there been a Lady Byng Trophy in Eddie Gerard’s day, there is a solid chance he would have won a boatload of them. Gerard was not just a gentlemanly player, but a certifiable star on the blue line. Initially Gerard started his career as a forward, but once he converted to defense he was came into his own and propelled the Ottawa Senators to three Stanley Cups, and ironically one as a member of the Toronto St. Pats, when he was allowed to substitute for injured players in 1922. Can you imagine that happening today?
As one of the greatest athletes ever to come from Ottawa and a member of the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Eddie Gerard was part of the inaugural class for the Hockey Hall of Fame. It is a shame though that he is not more revered in his hometown of Ottawa.
