Frank Corbett "The Flash" Foyston (February 2, 1891 – January 19, 1966) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player and coach. Foyston was a member of Stanley Cup championship teams with the Toronto Blueshirts in 1914, the Seattle Metropolitans in 1917 and the Victoria Cougars in 1925. After his retirement from playing, Foyston became a minor league head coach and later a scout. He is one of only ten players in Stanley Cup history to win the Cup with three different teams. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1958.
Born in Minesing, Ontario, Foyston played junior hockey in Barrie, Ontario, then moved to Toronto. He turned professional for the Toronto Blueshirts of the NHA in 1912. He won the Stanley Cup with Toronto in 1914. Foyston then moved to the American west coast and helped the PCHA's Seattle Metropolitans become the first American team to win the Cup in 1917. He played in the PCHA for nine seasons and led the league in goals twice. He also helped the Victoria Cougars win the Cup in 1925. The team's players were bought by the new expansion Detroit Cougars franchise of the NHL. Foyston played a season and a half before being demoted to the minor league Detroit Olympics, where he finished his playing career in 1930.
Foyston was head coach of the Syracuse Stars from 1930 to 1931 in the IHL, and the Bronx Tigers from 1931 to 1932 in the CAHL. Foyston later became a scout for the Detroit Red Wings, and also operated a turkey ranch in Port Orchard, Washington, after his hockey days.
