Nevin, an excellent two-way forward who played 18 seasons in the NHL, was a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Toronto Maple Leafs early in his career and became one of the few players in any sport to put up his best offensive totals after his 35th birthday. He was also one of the first NHL players to wear contact lenses while he played.
The native of South Porcupine, Ontario, excelled in junior hockey with the Toronto Marlboros and was just 19 when he made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs against the New York Rangers on Dec. 8, 1957. He played four games with the Maple Leafs in 1957-58 and two the following season before making the Maple Leafs to stay in 1960-61, scoring 21 goals and 58 points to finish second in voting for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie.
