RW - Mac Colville

He is described as a "tireless worker" and that is not surprising.

Mac paid attention to defensive play. ''I did all the backchecking."
***His playoff experience is pretty good for his era, with 19 NHL playoff points in an impressive 40 postseason games between 1937-42, including two finals and a stanley cup championship.

* Stanley Cup Champion (1940)
* Top Goal Finishes: 16th (1941), 20th (1938)
* Top Assist Finishes: 12th (1939)
