Shack went on to play for the Boston Bruins (where his Stanley Cup-winning experience gained him a more prominent position in the attack, scoring 23 goals), the Los Angeles Kings, the Buffalo Sabres, and the Pittsburgh Penguins after leaving the Maple Leafs. He played in 694 NHL games, scoring 366 goals and adding 517 points.
After retiring from playing, Shack became an assistant coach with the Toronto Maple Leafs and later served as their head coach for three seasons (1995-97). During that time, he won the Presidents' Trophy as the league's top scorer with 103 points (35G-68A). He also led the team to the playoffs each year he was there.
In 1998, he was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Shack died in August 2016 at the age of 80.
On November 19, 2014, the day before Thanksgiving, the Boston Bruins honored Shack by wearing jerseys with his name and number (10) on it during their game against the Montreal Canadiens.
In 2015, the first season of the Toronto Maple Leafs' new arena (the Air Canada Centre) was open, they celebrated Shack's life by wearing his number (10) on their home ice during a game against the New York Islanders. The Maple Leafs lost this game 1-0.
Roy was voted one of the 100 best NHL players of all time in 2017. Roy, nicknamed "Saint Patrick," spent his NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens, where he spent 11 years, and the Colorado Avalanche, where he spent eight years. He finished with 261 wins, 36 losses, and 101 ties.
During his tenure with the Canadiens, Roy won two Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1993. He also received a nomination for the Norris Trophy as the league's best defenseman three times.
After leaving the Canadiens, Roy went on to win a second Stanley Cup with the Avalanche in 1996. He returned to Montreal in 1999 but was traded back to the Avalanche that same year. After one more season with the Avalanche, Roy retired from hockey.
When he was done playing, Roy immediately became involved in hockey management. He had a front-row seat to see his former teammates win another Stanley Cup in 2009, thus giving him two championships in his career.
Since retiring, Roy has worked as an analyst for RDS and Hockey Night in Canada. In 2007, he became the first goalie to receive the Mark Messier Leadership Award from the NHL Foundation. In 2017, he was named one of the 100 greatest players of all time by the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Edward Steven Phillip Shack (February 11, 1937–July 25, 2020), nicknamed "the Entertainer" and "the Nose," was a Canadian professional ice hockey player who played for six National Hockey League (NHL) clubs between 1959 and 1975. He is most known for his role as the right wing on the famed "Sutter Daughters" line with Rod Gilbert and George Skovlunds during the team's first three seasons in Los Angeles.
Shack was born in Toronto, Ontario. He started his career with the Montreal Canadiens before being traded to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for Norm Ullman on December 8, 1958. The following season, he joined the Los Angeles Blades of the American Hockey League (AHL). After one season with the Blades, he was called up by the Red Wings, where he stayed for four years until he was traded back to the Canadiens for cash on February 24, 1962.
In 1964, Shack joined the New York Rangers, for whom he played two seasons before finishing his NHL career with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1966-67. After retiring from playing, he became an assistant coach for the Blackhawks and later served as a scout for the Vancouver Canucks. Shack died in Toronto on July 25, 2020, at the age of 83.
He spent one season with the Rangers before moving on to the Pittsburgh Penguins (1971–72) and, subsequently, the Buffalo Sabres (1972–74). During that time, he scored 40 goals and added 60 assists for 100 points in only 102 games.
After leaving the Sabres, Horton joined the Vancouver Canucks for the 1974-75 season. He played three seasons with the Canucks before finishing his career with two more campaigns in Montreal. The Canadiens released him during the 1977-78 season. Overall, Horton played 10 seasons in the NHL, scoring 160 goals and adding 210 assists for 370 points.
Horton was born on January 4th, 1945 in Toronto, Ontario. He was drafted by the New York Rangers in the first round of the 1968 NHL Amateur Draft. That same year, the Rangers traded his draft pick to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Jim Roberts. Roberts went on to play 617 games in a Ranger jersey.
Horton himself only managed to play 102 games over four seasons with the Rangers, but he still managed to score 40 goals and add 60 assists for 100 points. In 1972, the Penguins picked him up after one season with the Rangers, and they were very happy with what they saw from Horton.
He also had stints with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, and Buffalo Sabres. Gardner was a talented scorer and an effective presence in front of the net. He twice led the American Hockey League in scoring (1985 and 1986). Although he was a popular player, his inferior skating abilities derailed a potential career. After retiring as a player, he became an assistant coach with the Sabres.
Gardner made his debut with the New York Rangers on October 4, 1979. In his first season with the team, he played in all 82 games and notched 14 goals and 22 assists for 36 points. He ranked second on the club with a +20 rating. The following year, Gardner improved upon those numbers by playing in every game and notching 31 goals and 32 assists for 63 points. He finished second in voting for the Calder Memorial Trophy, which goes to the league's best rookie.
After another strong campaign in 1981-82, in which he scored 39 goals and added 61 assists for 100 points, Gardner was awarded the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. This annual award is given to the player who exhibits the most skill while exhibiting good sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct toward his opponent and the officials.
Besides being famous for his scoring touch, Gardner was also known for his aggressive style of play. He was frequently involved in fights and often needed assistance to be taken off the ice. As a result, he suffered several injuries that prevented him from continuing his career.
