Hockey player. At only 5'3", he was one of the NHL's smallest-ever goaltenders, and was nicknamed "Shrimp." He started his NHL career with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1925 and spent three seasons with them before being traded to the New York Americans, where he stayed until his retirement in 1937. He was the first goaltender to use the backhand side of his stick to deflect shots into the corners. He won the Hart Trophy for the 1928-29 season and the Vezina Trophy for the 1930-31 season. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1969.
