Tiny Thompson
Another player who had a wait maybe a year longer than he should have, CecilTiny” Thompson was a backstopping legend in the early days of the National Hockey League. Thompson was a workhorse who constantly won games for the Bruins and eventually helped them win the Stanley Cup in 1929. The workhorse was consistently the top netminder in multiple categories and in all likelihood should have been inducted in the class the year previously. Regardless, Thompson achieved the penultimate goal in Toronto and became a Hall of Famer; albeit later than he should have.
