Myles J. Lane (born October 2, 1905 in Melrose, Massachusetts - died August 6, 1987 in Manhattan, New York) was a professional ice hockey player, college football player and coach, and New York Supreme Court justice. He was the last surviving member of the 1929 Stanley Cup champion Bruins.

HockeyEdit

A star player at Dartmouth, Lane signed with the New York Rangers on October 1, 1928. He became only the third American-born player and the first American-trained player to join the National Hockey League.

In 1928, Lane was offered by the Rangers to the Bruins for Eddie Shore and $5,000. Rangers President John Hammond believed that because Lane was such a hero in his home state, the Bruins would do anything to acquire him. According to former Rangers publicity director Stan Saplin, who got the story from Lester Patrick, the telegram Bruins' president, Charles F. Adams sent back read: GET A LIFE PRESERVER - YOU ARE MYLES FROM SHORE. The Rangers later sold his contract to the Bruins for $7,500. He was with the Bruins when they won the Stanley Cup in 1929. From 1931-1934 played for the minor league Boston Cubs of the Canadian-American Hockey League.
