Like his brother Lester, Frank Patrick was a decent player who became more famous in hockey for his off ice contributions than what he did on it. Along with his brother, he founded the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (later renamed the Western Canada Hockey League) and it was many of his initiatives while there that shaped the game as we know it today.

George Richardson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2447-george-richardson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2447-george-richardson George Richardson
A star with Queen’s University, George Richardson would later lead the 14th Regiment of Kingston hockey squad to three consecutive OHA finals. A good scorer and gentlemanly player, Richardson was one of the good guys of the early game. Richardson would perish in World War I serving the Canadian Armed Forces.

Graham Drinkwater http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2448-graham-drinkwater http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2448-graham-drinkwater A top player in the 1890’s, Graham Drinkwater was one of the top players in the game’s beginnings. Drinkwater scored thirty goals in thirty one regular season games for the Montreal Victorias and helped them to win three Stanley Cups making the Victorias one of the first real hockey dynasties.]]> [email protected] (Site Admin) 1950 Hockey Inductees Sat, 05 Jan 2013 02:40:44 +0000 Harry Trihey http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2449-harry-trihey http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2449-harry-trihey Harry Trihey
Harry Trihey was a star forward for the Montreal Shamrocks at the turn of the century at a time when they dominated the Stanley Cup. Trihey’s biggest contribution to the sport of Hockey was getting his defencemen to rush the puck instead of simply shooting the puck in the air automatically. His strategic innovations alone make him Hall of Fame material.

Joe Malone http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2450-joe-malone http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2450-joe-malone Joe Malone
A goal scoring machine (his 44 goals in 20 games remains the highest GPG average ever), Joe Malone would twice lead the National Hockey League in goals and points. As part of the powerful line with Newsy Lalonde and Didier Pitre, Malone was the goal scorer of the first great line of the National Hockey League. Overall, Malone would average well over a goal a game during his career and would score five goals or more in a game ten times. Seems like a Hall of Famer to us!

Mike Grant http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2451-mike-grant http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2451-mike-grant Mike Grant
The captain of the first real dynasty in organized hockey, Mike Grant led his Montreal Victorias a multitude of Stanley Cup victories. A defenceman with very good offensive skills, Grant was also a great ambassador for the game as he organized exhibition games in the United States spreading the sport there. Grant remains the youngest captain to ever hoist the Stanley Cup.

Newsy Lalonde http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2452-newsy-lalonde http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2452-newsy-lalonde Newsy Lalonde
Arguably the first megastar of the legendary Montreal Canadians franchise, Newsy Lalonde scored their first goal and was the captain of their first (of many) Stanley Cup wins. Lalonde was a scoring machine netting 150 goals in just over 100 games in the old NHA and was a seven time scoring champion in multiple leagues. Newsy (cool name isn’t it?) Lalonde is a solid selection to the 1950 Hall of Fame Class.

Scotty Davidson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2453-scotty-davidson http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2453-scotty-davidson Scotty Davidson
Considered one of best wingers in the early days of Hockey, Scotty Davidson was a star in the NHA, captaining the Toronto Blue Shirts to a Stanley Cup win in 1914. Davidson was a good goal scorer for Toronto with 42 goals in 40 games. The 23 year old Davidson enlisted into the Canadian Army and was killed shortly thereafter ending what should have been a stellar career. He was inducted posthumously in 1950.

Si Griffis http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2454-si-griffis http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1950s-inductees/1950-hockey-inductees/2454-si-griffis Si Griffis
A gifted skater, Si Griffis transcended effortlessly from the seven man to six man game. Initially a Rover, Griffis moved to Defence and was among the best in his day. The American born (yet Canadian raised) player first became a star in Northwest Ontario leading the Rat Portage (later Kenora) Thistles to prominence leading them to Stanley Cup in 1907. Later, he would ply his trade in the West, captaining the Vancouver Millionaires to the Cup in 1915.
