Lorne Chabot – Goaltender (1926-1937)

Lorne Chabot played in 18 NHL seasons for the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Montreal Maroons and New York Americans.

Chabot won the 1935 Vezina trophy and was the starting goaltender on two Stanley Cup Championship teams: the 1928 New York Rangers and the 1932 Toronto Maple Leafs.

He also has the fourth best career goals against average in NHL history (2.03) and the 12th most career shutouts in NHL history (71).

Though Lorne Chabot has the hardware, the Cups and the career achievements to earn a spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame, he’s very unlikely to ever get an induction.

It seems as though the Hockey Hall of Fame is through with inducting players from the Original 6 era and prior.  The last player inducted who played primarily in the Original 6 era was Dick Duff in 2006.
