46. Bill Hay

Prior to making his National Hockey League debut, Bill Hay was traded from the Montreal Canadiens for Cash who would watch their former farmhand win the Calder Trophy in 1960 and assist the Blackhawks win the 1961 Stanley Cup.  Hay was a solid playmaker whose 386 Points (all with Chicago) were Assists and he was the leader in Assists per Game in the 1961/62 season.  Hay would play eight seasons in the NHL and would retire shortly after being claimed the St. Louis Blues in the Expansion Draft.

Hay would enter the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2015 in the builder category.
