55. Andre Lacroix

As a skill player for the Philadelphia Flyer,s the speedy and undersized Andre Lacroix was a star but not necessarily a superstar. Lacroix was one of the many who took the pay increase to join the WHA, and the more open game worked towards his style of play. Lacroix may have bounced around that struggling league but wherever he went he was scoring profusely. Lacroix would go down in history as the all-time leading scorer of the World Hockey Association finishing with 798 points and six consecutive seasons hitting the 100 point plateau. Likely, because all his great moments were in the WHA (and with teams that were struggling even by WHA standards) his contributions have gone largely unnoticed. Had there ever been a WHA specific Hall of Fam,e however, Andre Lacroix would be on the first ballot.
