Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Lorne Carr
A Western boy, Carr played for the Calgary Canadians before embarking on a pro career that would see him win two Stanley Cups. He signed with the New York Rangers during the 1933-34 season, but after going pointless in 14 games he was sent to cross-town rivals the Americans in the off-season.

With the "Amazing Amerks" he starred on a line with Sweeney Schriner and Art Chapman for five years, and in the 1938 playoffs he exacted sweet revenge on his old club. In the deciding game of the best-of-three series, he scored in quadruple overtime to eliminate the Rangers, though the Americans were in turn ousted in the semi-finals by Chicago.

In 1941 he was sent to Toronto, and that's where he enjoyed his greatest success during his final five years in the NHL. In the 1942 finals, the Leafs rallied from 3-0 down in games to beat the Red Wings and win the Stanley Cup, winning game seven 3-1. Carr assisted on two of the goals, scored by his long-time friend Sweeney Schriner (their linemate was Billy Taylor).

In 1945, he again was on the Cup-winning Leaf team. During his time at Maple Leaf Gardens, he led the team in scoring twice and was named to the First All-Star team twice as well. Carr retired in 1946.
