Ernie Russell won four Stanley Cups in five years for the Montreal Wanderers from 1906-1910. In 1907, while he was banned from hockey, he led his football team (Montreal Football Club) to a 75-10 victory in the Dominion Rugby Championship of Canada—the precursor to the Grey Cup. He is probably best remembered for scoring five consecutive hat tricks—a record which has never been equaled in the long history of the NHL.
