Left-winger 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
Nice choice pappy, he was going to be my next pick.

I'll take C Dutch Reibel.

During that lone campaign, Reibel became the first player in the Ontario league's history to surpass the 100-point mark in a single season.

The Red Wings could no longer ignore the exploits of their right wing prospect. In 1953-54, Reibel finally joined the Wings lineup where he was placed on a line with Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay. As a talented playmaker, Reibel scored at a very steady clip, helping his club to two Stanley Cup victories during his four and a half seasons with the team. In 1956, his Red Wing success was topped off with a Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play.
His best season came in 1954/55 when he led the Red Wings in points and finished fourth in the league. It marked the only season between 1950/51 and 1960/61 that someone other than Gordie Howe finished first on the Red Wings in scoring. He followed that up with an eighth place finish in 55/56.
