1938 - Chicago Black Hawks


The Black Hawks faced the start of the Stanley Cup finals without top goaltender Mike Karakas, who had played every game during the season but broke his big toe on April 3. Chicago was forced to sign journeyman netminder Alfie Moore, who played game one and posted a win in his only Cup appearance.

Following the victory, NHL President Frank Calder ruled Moore ineligible for further play, and Chicago had to call on minor-league goalie Paul Goodman, who lost his first NHL start in game two.

Karakas finally returned with a steel-capped boot to protect his toe and won both starts, while teammate Doc Romnes wore a football helmet to guard a broken nose and scored the winning goal in game three before a record crowd of 18,497.

Eight American-born players - Karakas, Romnes, Alex Levinsky, Carl Voss, Carl Dahlstrom, Roger Jenkins, Louis Trudel and Virgil Johnson - skated for the Black Hawks to set a record (not broken until 1995) for U.S. talent on a Cup winner.
