Playing career

Allan Stanley

Stanley spent the 1943 through 1948 seasons with various teams including the Boston Olympics of the EHL, Porcupine Combines of the NOHA and the Providence Reds of AHL. He finally began his storied NHL career in 1948-49 with the New York Rangers.

He played five years in New York before spending the 1953-54 season in the WHL with Vancouver. Stanley started his 1954-55 season in New York with the Rangers and was soon traded to the Chicago Black Hawks where he finished that season and the next.

Stanley spent the 1956-57 and 1957-58 season with the Boston Bruins then went on to spend ten years with the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he would be named one of the team's alternate captains. He acquired the nicknames "Snowshoes" and "Silent Sam" for his slow, plodding skating style, although he was a strong stay-at-home defender and an important part of the Leafs teams which won four Stanley Cups in six years in the 1960s in 1962, 1963, 1964, 1967.

After the 1967 Cup win, Stanley finished off his career playing for the Philadelphia Flyers in 1968-69.

In 1,244 NHL regular-season games, Stanley scored 100 goals, 333 assists for a total of 433 points. He had a total of 792 minutes in the penalty box. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981.
