Goodfellow, Ebbie
Detroit Red Wings
1939-40

EBENEZER GOODFELLOW sounds like a name W.C. Fields might have used in one of his film comedies, but it was the actual name of the Detroit Red Wings' star. EBBIE joined the NHL as a member of the Detroit Cougars in 1929-30, becoming a Red Wing when the franchise changed their name in 1932-33. In 1939-40, GOODFELLOW scored 11 goals and 17 assists for 28 points, but Detroit finished in fifth place that season. Yet, the Ottawa, Ontario-born GOODFELLOW impressed enough to not only earn a spot on the NHL's First All-Star Team, but also to win the league's HART TROPHY as its most valuable player. The Maple Leafs' Syl Apps was runner-up to GOODFELLOW in voting for the HART.
