Gord Pettinger

won it all with three different NHL franchises

This British-born, Canadian-raised NHL defensive-minded tall left wing/center won the Memorial Cup as captain of the Regina Pats and then went on to win four Stanley Cups with three different NHL franchises (Rangers, Red Wings, Bruins) - something only 5 players have ever done - and was supposedly named the Red Wings captain after their 1937 cup and - as tradition - each player got the trophy to do what they will and he - umm - how can I say this... he crapped in the Stanley Cup. That's right. The captain crapped in the cup. Dropped a deuce. As a result he lost his captaincy and was traded.

Gordon Pettinger, captain of the Red Wings, once defecated in it... That act was considered so outrageous, he was traded.
