Eddie Gerard

Had there been a Lady Byng Trophy in Eddie Gerard’s day, there is a solid chance he would have won a boatload of them. Gerard was not just a gentlemanly player, but a certifiable star on the blue line. Initially Gerard started his career as a forward, but once he converted to defense he was came into his own and propelled the Ottawa Senators to three Stanley Cups, and ironically one as a member of the Toronto St. Pats, when he was allowed to substitute for injured players in 1922. Can you imagine that happening today?
