I was one of the top stars in the NHL winning the Art Ross Trophy in 1929, when my career came to a sudden and shocking end on December 12, 1933. At first it even looked like the hit I took would end my life as homicide investiagtors were preparing to charge Eddie Shore who had caused my head injury. I was forced to go through major surgery which created a burden on my family so the NHL decided to hold a beneift game in my honor. Fortuntley I pulled through and worked with the Leafs for the rest of my life which ended in 1992 nearly 60 yars after the big hit.

Who Am I?

And that Benefit game was the first NHL All Star game--although it was a one shot at that time.

But not officially the first all-star game.

They held another unofficial all-star game (I THINK) after Howie Mornez had a career and (ultimately) life ending injury.
