Roy Worters
  • 1st Team All Star (1926) over ? (Charles Stewart was 2nd in Hart voting among goalies)
  • 1st Team All Star (1927) over ?
  • 1st Team All Star (1928) over George Hainsworth and Alec Connell
  • 1st Team All Star (1929) over ?
  • no records for 1930, but Charlie Gardiner led goalies in Hart voting
  • 3rd Team All Star (1931) behind Charlie Gardiner and Tiny Thompson
  • 2nd Team All Star (1932) behind Charlie Gardiner, ahead of George Hainsworth
  • 3rd Team All Star (1933) behind John Ross Roach and Charlie Gardiner
  • 2nd Team All Star (1934) behind Charlie Gardiner, ahead of Tiny Thompson
  • 3rd Team All Star (1935) behind Lorne Chabot and Tiny Thompson
All this talk about the Western leagues reminded me to highlight this. In 1925-26, half the talent was still in the WCHL. George Hainsworth, for example, played in the WCHL from 1923-24 to 1925-26 from the ages of 28 - 30 before coming to the NHL when the WCHL folded.

So Worters' competition for the first of his 4 straight (unofficial) 1st Team All Stars was basically Alec Connell (who led the league in GAA by a wide margin playing for the stacked Ottawa Senators), Clint Benedict (the defending Cup winner but aging), and little else.
