Red Kelly
A member of eight Stanley Cup-winning teams, Leonard Patrick 'Red' Kelly played junior hockey with the St. Michael's Majors. In 1947, he became a member of the Detroit Red Wings. Although he was a defenceman, he won the Lady Byng Trophy - awarded to the player best combining skill and sportsmanship - four times and appeared in thirteen All-Star Games. In 1960, he joined the Toronto Maple Leafs. From 1962 to 1965, Kelly was active in politics as a member of Parliament. He won his final Stanley Cup with the Maple Leafs in 1967. Kelly finished his career as coach with Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and Toronto.
