Art Ross won three Stanley Cups and later became the first coach and general manager of the Boston Bruins. While behind the Boston Bruins’ bench in 1931, Ross was the first to pull the goalie (Hall of Famer, Tiny Thompson) for an extra attacker during the final minutes of play. Ironically, the Art Ross Trophy is awarded to the leading individual scorer each year even though Art Ross only scored a single goal in the NHL. After finishing with hockey, Art Ross settled in Massachusetts, became a naturalized United States citizen, and worked as the traveling secretary for the Boston Braves.
