Neil Colville

The first player to be named to a post season All Star team in two positions (first as a Centre, then at Defence) Neil Colville just looked comfortable regardless of his position on the ice. He came up with the New York Rangers (where he would spend his entire pro career) and he would soon centre the “Bread Line” which was consisted of his brother Mac and Alex Shibicky. Colville’s playmaking skills helped the Rangers capture the Stanley Cup in 1940, but the man who was nicknamed “Frosty” participated in World War II and lost a few years due to the war. When he came to play in the NHL he was a step slower, but still found a way to become very productive.
