Most Cups by non-stars?

What obscure player has the most cups? Just role players that would play 3rd or 4th line who wouldn't play more than 5 minutes a game?

The only reason why I ask this question is because Colin Fraser has 2, however I know there as to be a player or former player that has at least 5+ as a role player.

I suppose the criteria should be the player was never a regular top-6 and was generally a bottom pairing player throughout his career. I suppose the same applies to defense. A guy who played a limited role as a top 4 but was known as a bottom 2 defeneman. In short - a borderline NHL/AHL/IHL etc player.

Claude Provost has the most Cups of any player not in the hall of fame with 9. He was a right winger on the Canadiens in the 50s & 60s, and was generally a checking 3rd liner behind Maurice Richard Geoffrion and, after each respected retirement, Bobby Rousseau and Cournoyer.

That said, he probably would have been a star in the 70s or 80s after expansion. He was probably just unluckily stuck behind two of the best players in history at his position in his prime. As it was, he still scored 254 goal and had 589 points in just over 1000 games.

I'm not familiar with names like Backstrom, Johnson and Marshall, so I suppose it has to be a guy with 3-5 SCs. It would be worthy to check Oilers and Isles dynasties if some scrubs didn't win it all.
Down to three-four SCs - there are probably a lot of such players.

Think Billy Carroll might count?

BTW, Tom Johnson and Jack Marshall are both in the HOF.

Kirk Maltby has 4 cups. Always a bottom 6 guy.

Also defensive specialists like Pouzar or Carbonneau have 3 rings. Altough, I would hardly call them scrubs.

Best candidate for this that I can see on the Oilers is Dave Hunter. He was on the team for their first 3 cups. Not sure if he is far enough down the depth chart to qualify for this thread though.

Kris Draper with 4 Cups would qualify as a 'non-star', but doesn't really match the description in the OP.

Rick Chartraw

Rick Chartraw - 4 SCS with Montreal, 1 with Edmonton.

http://www.hockey-reference.com/play...chartri01.html

Never a top 4 dman or top 6 forward.

Bob Turner has 5 SCs with Montreal but at times was a top 4 dman.

Don Marshall has 5 SCs with Montreal but was a 2nd team AS with the Rangers at LW.

Jim Roberts is the guy who came to my mind. Was a 4th line checker and depth defenseman in Montreal and St. Louis. He was more than a bench rider or borderline NHLer, but definitely never got a sniff at top 6/top 4 minutes.

Roberts was on the Montreal Cup winners in 65 and 66, lost in the '67 Finals, was picked up by St. Louis in the Expansion draft and played in the Finals the three straight years the Blues represented the expansion teams. When Bowman became coach in Montreal the Habs traded Phil Roberto for him and Roberts played on the Cup winning teams in '73, 76 and 77. Rejean Houle's return from the WHA and the development of Chartraw made him superfluous and was traded back to St. Louis for a 3rd rd. pick (that became Guy Carbonneau)

In all he appeared in 9 finals, including 6 straight, winning 5 Cups.

Depth Players

Note, players like Ralph Backstrom - 6 SCs led the Canadiens in scoring one year and was a top 6 forwards with the Kings, Jim Roberts, 5SCs but 3rd on the Blues in scoring 1967-68 and Claude Larose, 5SCs but top 6 forward with Minnesota seem to be outside the guidelines,

Yep, Roberts was 3rd in scoring on a thin group of forwards and he certainly got more than 5 minutes a game, but he was still ultimately the third-line RW, behind Gary Sabourin and Frank St. Marseille. Roberts played 24 more games than Sabourin and 17 more than St. Marseille, which skews the numbers a bit. That whopping 37 pts. in 67-68 was Roberts highest total for his 15 year career. The following year he dropped to 8th in team scoring, then 10th in 69-70. Great checker and penalty-killer, just not a top 6 winger.

Larry Hillman, 4SCs with 3 teams - Detroit, Toronto(2), Montreal.

Marcel Bonin was the 1959 playoff goal scoring leader with 10.

Ya thats right too... not exactly "obscure" was that little feat. Against the Leafs of course. How about Bob Turner? Turner won what, 5 Cups? Bonin's career ended when he had a collision with hard rock Defenceman Pete Goegan in 62, serious back injury.

not an obscure name though, due to him being arguably the greatest puncher in hockey history.

Bob Turner was the 4th dman in 1958-59. Often playing 3rd as Harvey was injured.

Little known detail about Marcel Bonin - the collision with Goegan aggrvated a back injury first suffered wrestling a bear.
