Lorne Worsley - 1967 Topps

Lorne John “Gump” Worsley (1929-2007) once referred to his ace as his mask and was the last goaltender in the history of the NHL to play without a mask. Nicknamed after a popular comics character, Gump’s early years of professional hockey saw him p bounce around from league to league, team to team, winning award after award wherever he landed. He was the rookie of the year and top goaltender in 1951 with the St. Paul Saints of the United States Hockey League. He was the Western Hockey League’s Most Valuable Player in 1954 with a record of 39-24-7 as he helped his team to a first overall in the league. Finally gaining recognition, Worsley joined the last placed New York Rangers in 1952 on a permanent basis. He went 13-29-8 in his first year and was named the Calder Trophy winner as he helped the Rangers out of the cellar. Lorne played 21 years in the NHL with the Rangers (1952-53, 1954-1963), the Montreal Canadiens (1963-1970) and the Minnesota North Stars (1970-1974). He led the NHL in games played and total minutes twice, in losses and goals against three times and once in goals against average. Gump won the 1966 and 1968 Vezina Trophies as the league’s top goaltender, posting a 29-14-6 and a 19-9-8 record with a 1.98 GAA respectively. He earned four trips to the NHL All-Star Game and was also named to the 1967-68 NHL All-Star First Team. The Gumper led the Montreal Canadiens to four Stanley Cup Championships (1965-1966, 1968-1969). Gump Worsley finished his career with a 335-352-150 record in 861 games. He added a 2.88 Goals Against Average and posted 43 shutouts. He is the first player in NHL history to have won 300 games and lost 300 games. Gump Worsley was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1980.
