Lorne Gump Worsley spent only seven of his 22 NHL seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, but he made the most of his time there.

In all his years of playing, he won four Stanley Cups, all with the Habs. He made the first team all-star team on one occasion, with Montreal. And he won two Vezina trophies, also with, you guessed it, Montreal.

His only other major hardware came when he won the Calder trophy for rookie of the year in 1953 with the New York Rangers.

He was traded to the Habs from the  Rangers in 1963, after helping to try and start a players union.

1967-68 was undoubtedly his best season, as he had a 1.98 GAA and went 11-0 in the playoffs.  He also won his second Vezina trophy that year.
