Gordie Drillon
Although Gordie Drillon only played seven seasons in the National Hockey League, they were all productive ones for the Right Winger. Drillon played most of those campaigns in Toronto and he averaged nearly a point a game. Drillon won the NHL scoring title in 1938, which would also be the same year he won the Lady Byng Trophy. A two time First Team All Star, Drillon also won a Stanley Cup in Toronto (though it was not his best performance, as he was benched in the Finals).

Gordie Drillon’s NHL career was shortened, though not because he had a drop off in talent, nor due to injury. Drillon enlisted into the Canadian military during World War II, and though a young man when he returned, decided not to pursue a return to the NHL. Overall, Drillon still had a resume that was worth a look for the Hall of Fame to induct him, but honestly, just barely!
