Besides being a Hall of Fame member and Stanley Cup Champion, Jack Laviolette has the notable distinction of being the first captain, coach, and general manager of the Montreal Canadiens. He was also one of the first francophonic ice hockey stars. He signed fellow Hall of Famers Newsy Lalonde, Didier Pitre, and Georges Vezina for the inaugural season of The Habs—the most successful franchise in the history of professional hockey. His career ended abruptly in 1919 when he lost his right foot in a car accident.
