Vincent Damphousse: led three different teams in scoring in successive seasons

Bit of trivia for a quiet weekday night:

Vinny won his team's points titles in 1990-91 (Toronto Maple Leafs), 1991-92 (Edmonton Oilers) and 1992-93 (Montreal Canadiens).

Anyone else ever accomplish this curiosity?

(1995-1997 Gretz doesn't count because he didn't lead the '96 Blues; 81 of his points belonged to LA.)

Not even possible, since he had a stop in New Jersey in between.

He did lead the 1983/84 Kings, 1985/86 Kings and 1994/95 Blackhawks in scoring.

I remember this being in an NHL trivia book from when I was a child and he was the only one who had truly accomplished this.

There's no direct translation so far as I know, and the internet doesn't seem to know the etymology of the name either.

Absolutely nothing. But it might just have been a foreign name with a few letters changed at some point (like it has been the case for many people, including me).

ray sheppard came very close to leading three teams in goals in three consecutive years, but not points. and he finished two goals back of nolan one of those years.

shanahan and turgeon both led different teams in points in two of three years, but finished second to hull in the other year.

how many other significant scorers have even played for three teams in three years?

Andy Bathgate... but he wasn't a significant scorer by then.

Selanne (with a lockout in between), but we all know how 03-04 went.

If you go back to the early years of pro hockey, you saw top scorers changing teams all the time.

Tommy Smith comes close to Damphousse's accomplishment. He led Pittsburgh Lyceum (WPHL) in scoring in 1907/08, then Brantford (OPHL) in 1908/09 before missing nearly all of the 1909/10 season with typhoid fever. Then he led Galt (OPHL) in 1910/11 and Moncton (MPHA) in 1911/12 but then finished second to Joe Malone with Quebec (NHA) in 1912/13. Then he led Quebec in 1913/14.

But his brother Harry has everyone beat. He led the following teams in scoring in consecutive seasons (and played for several other teams in these years as well for a few games).

1906/07: Ottawa (ECAHA)
1907/08: Pittsburgh Bankers (WPHL)
1908/09: Haileybury (TPHL)
1909/10: Cobalt (NHA)
1910/11: Waterloo (OPHL)
1911/12: Schreiber (NOHL)
1912/13: Toronto Tecumsehs (NHA)

That's seven straight seasons of leading a different professional team in scoring. Also, from 1903/04 to 1905/06 he led three different amateur teams in scoring. This guy only ever played two consecutive full seasons with the same team once in his career.

Yup. He was often criticized for his conditioning and effort, but he scored wherever he went. Just an amazing natural talent for scoring goals.

Damphousse = d'amphousse = of Amphousse = either from a region or a family.

There you do. Now the question becomes: what does Amphousse refer to? Can't find any locale in France or elsewhere called Amphousse or Amphouse. No etymology for the name avaiable online unfortunately.

Just a guess, but I wonder if Amphousse is a french translation of amphitheater? All roads lead to Rome.

Could well do LBD.... and if it matters, take it to ancestry.com or wherever. This is hf HOH. And though etymology is a fascinating subject falls well beyond our parameters yes?.

Housse is French for slipcover. Link provided gives the region in France of Amphousse - mouth of the Rhone / Cote d'Azur.

My reading is that's the region of France in which the name was found. Those are references to the name Amphousse, I see no reference to a region called that.

Yes, that's what it seems to me too.

And FWIW, it would seem highly unusual for a French Canadian to trace their ancestry to the southern portion of France. But, who knows.

Ok, nuff bout dat. There is a mention of Cote'dAzur in a couple of old Quebecers family tree's (and its not unusual at all for people to trace their ancestry back as far as they possibly can actually) & name origin on a couple of sites. That area would be ideal, with trade caravans & ships bringing in silks & cottons from the Middle East & elsewhere.

Lets move on now please.
