d Jack "Tex" Evans. First played in the NHL in 1948, Spent 7 full seasons with the Rangers and 5 with the Blackhawks. A member of the 61 Blackhawk cup team where he was on the second pairing with St. Laurent. Scored a key goal in the deciding game of the 61 final.

c Mike Walton Through 12 NHL seasons, spent with Toronto, Boston, Vancouver, St. Louis and Chicago, Walton collected 448 points in 588 regular season contents. In three WHA seasons, Mike played 211 games and recorded 281 points, including a league-best 117 for Minnesota in 1973-74.

Lw Danny Lewicki was a consistent scorer during nine NHL seasons spent with three teams. Although he weighed only 148 lbs., the tenacious forward drove hard to the net and didn't back down against enemy checkers-Legends of hockey

g Joe Daley Daley served as the Jets back up in 1972-73, but he took the starting reigns the following year and enjoyed great success with them. In 1975-76 Daley won 41 games and backstopped the Jets to their first Avco Cup as league champions. By the time the WHA folded Daley was the winningest goaltender in league history and had three Avco Cup championships on his resume

Lw Errol thompson A speedy left-winger with a blazing shot, Errol Thompson played nearly 600 NHL games in the 1970s and '80s. He was a good-natured competitor whose skill allowed him to hit the 20-goal mark six times in his career.

D Leo Reise Sr He was an excellent skater and had a handy touch as a playmaker as well. He first gained fame with the senior-league Hamilton Tigers of the OHA. He manned their blueline for three seasons until the club hooked up with the NHL. Reise stayed on for parts of four seasons, tying Punch Broadbent of Ottawa for the league lead in assists in 1921-22.

D Al Dewsbury was one of the giants of the game in the 1940s and 1950s. By today's standards, he would be considered just an average-sized player, but back then a 6'2" 202-pound rearguard was a very imposing figure to many of the smaller players in the game. From an offensive perspective, his best year was 1951-52 when he scored seven goals and 17 assists for 24 points. Dewsbury did win a Cup while playing with the Red Wings in 1949-50.He was also on the 59 Canada world champs team.

C Larry wilson Brother of Johnny & father of Ron. Not a lengthy NHL career. Only 152 games but got his name on the Stanley cup with the Red Wings in 49-50. Had a long productive AHL career which probably means he was NHL calibre back in the 50's,

RW Tom Webster It was the 1970-71 campaign that saw Webster's NHL career come to life when he joined the Detroit Red Wings, Webster proved his worth, scoring 30 goals, assisting on 37 others for a highly productive 67-point season.
But the biggest move of Webster's professional hockey career came in 1972 when he and many other NHLers opted to try their hand at the new WHA. Webster joined the New England Whalers, where he enjoyed six productive seasons. In his first WHA year, Webster scored 53 goals and 50 assists for 103 points. In 352 WHA games, he amassed 220 goals, 205 assists and 425 points-Legends 0f Hockey

RW Chico Maki By the fall of 1962, Maki had earned himself a place with the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks, where he remained for duration of his 13-year NHL career. Maki's best season from an offensive point of view was in 1970-71 when he tallied 22 goals and 48 points. played several seasons on a line with Bobby Hull

C Don Raleigh During the 1950 playoffs, he played heroically as the Rangers upset the Canadiens in the first round. Then, during the finals against the Wings, Raleigh scored overtime winners against goalie Harry Lumley to claim games four and five of the series. The Wings, however, roared back to take the final two games and the Stanley Cup.Raleigh remained a steady scorer and playmaker with the Rangers until 1955-56-Legends of hockey

RW Bill Hicke was a compact, fleet-footed skater who, as a junior with the Regina Pats, could put the puck in the net in a big way. The junior "phenom," received billing as the replacement for the Rocket.Naturally there was little Hicke could do to fulfill such expectations. He simply took advantage of the limited ice time he could steal away. During his six and a half seasons with the club, he did manage to score a modestly respectable number of points each year. He eventually ended up in Oakland, where he got plenty of ice time and an opportunity to net his best offensive numbers.
