Bio

Elmer Lach Bio

Forget, for a moment, Elmer Lach's three Stanley Cup championships with the Montreal Canadiens in the 1940s and 1950s, and his 215 goals and 408 assists in his 664 regular-season NHL games. Push aside his Hart Trophy in 1945 and his winning the inaugural Art Ross Trophy in 1948, his first League scoring title in 1944-45 predating the Ross award.

And even forget, for a moment, his title-clinching overtime goal against the Boston Bruins in the 1953 Stanley Cup Final, and his election to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.
