Earlseibert

Earl Walter Seibert (December 7, 1910 in Kitchener, Ontario - May 20, 1990) was a Canadian defenceman who played for 15 seasons for the Chicago Black Hawks, New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings.

Playing careerEdit

Earl was an important member of the 1933 Ranger and 1938 Black Hawk Stanley Cup victories. Each year from 1935 to 1944, Seibert was selected to the first or second all-star team (4 times to the first, 6 times to the second). A tenacious defender, Seibert was renowned for rugged physical play, famously being the only player Eddie Shore was unwilling to fight.

An accident during a January 28, 1937 game cast a shadow over Seibert's great career. Seibert and the legendary Howie Morenz became tangled up behind the Chicago net. Morenz fell awkwardly against the boards and broke his leg in several places. Morenz died in the hospital from complications of the injury several weeks later. Seibert was always haunted by the accident, even saying he killed Morenz.

After his NHL retirement, Seibert served as coach of Eddie Shore's Springfield Indians

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1963, and joined his father Oliver Seibert as the first father and son combination in the Hall of Fame. In 1998, he was ranked number 72 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.
