Jack Adams
The only man who is on the Stanley Cup as a player, Coach and a General Manager, Jack Adams may have been inducted as a player in 1959, but if the Hall allowed for multiple inductions, Adams would have been enshrined as many times as he appears on the Cup.

A tough player and respectable goal scorer, Adams twice aided his teams (Toronto Arenas in 1918 & Ottawa in 1927). His enshrinement as a player to the Hall was justified, but it was as a Head Coach that he achieved his greatest success. Adams joined Detroit and led the Red Wings to three Stanley Cups in 1936, 1937 & 1943. He would repeat this incredible feat as a General Manager taking Detroit to four Cups in the 1950’s. There should be no wonder as to why a major award (for Coach of the Year) is named after him.
