Billy Taylor began his NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1939–40. He played in Toronto for five seasons, and won the Stanley Cup in 1942 before being traded for the start of the 1946–47 season to the Detroit Red Wings for Harry Watson. While in Detroit, he set an NHL record for most assists in one game (7) against the Chicago Black Hawks. Wayne Gretzky has since matched that record. After only one season in Motown, he was dealt to the Boston Bruins for his last NHL season, 1947–48. That last season saw him play 39 games for the Bruins and two games for the Rangers. His career was cut short when Clarence S. Campbell suspended him for gambling violations in 1948. In 323 career regular season games, Taylor scored 87 goals and 267 points.
