Howie Morenz
Many have stated that Howie Morenz is the first true superstar of the National Hockey League. They may very well be right.


Morenz was the first player to score fifty points in a season, the first to win three Hart Trophies and anchored the Montreal Canadians to the Stanley Cup four times. Howie suffered a major injury and would later suffer a heart attack, while still an active player. He would become the first to have his jersey honored in Montreal (now think of what an honor that is!) and is the first icon of that hockey rich city. Frankly, it would have been a travesty had Morenz not been part of the inaugural class.

    48. Louie Dampier The quintessential ABA player, Louie Dampier came from Adolph Rupp's Kentucky runt teams.  Dampier found a home with the Kentucky Colonels becoming one of the only players in ABA history to play in all nine ABA seasons.  Dampier was a point guard who could shoot almost at will; they basically made the three point line for this guy!  One of…
