Bio

Tiny Thompson Bio

Tiny Thompson's rookie season remains among the best in NHL history.

Thompson, a four-time Vezina Trophy winner who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1959, burst into the League as a 25-year-old rookie with the Boston Bruins in 1928-29 by going 26-13 with five ties, a 1.15 goals-against average and 12 shutouts. He topped that during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, going 5-0 with three shutouts, allowing a total of three goals against the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers, to help Boston win the first of its six Stanley Cup championships.
