    As Indians owner, he had a cantankerous relation with his players.
    During the 1966-67 season, the entire Indians team refused to play after he suspended three players for 'indifferent play.'
    He was the first defenseman to win the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP four times.
    His aggressive play led the Bruins to their first Stanley Cup victory in team history (1929).
    His ear was nearly severed when teammate Billy Coutu headbutted him.
