Busher Jackson
As part of the famed “Kid Line”, HarveyBusher” Jackson would be part of the annual points chase for years, leading the league in the category in the 1931-32 season. Jackson used his excellent speed and offensive rushes to terrorize opponents, and in the year he won the scoring title, also led his team to the Stanley Cup.

Jackson would be named to four First Team All Star teams and was considered one of the finer players of the 1930’s. His induction to the Hall of Fame may have been delayed to his off the ice activities where he was considered an alcoholic and a womanizer. It has been reported that Jackson’s induction in 1971 is what led Conn Smythe to resign the Hall as its President as he questioned whether Busher Jackson had the character required to be Hall of Fame inductee. Ah…character; the constant debate of most of these sporting Hall of Fames, wouldn’t you say?
