Lorne "Chabotsky" Chabot (October 5, 1900 in Montreal, Quebec - October 10, 1946) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player. Chabot played in the National Hockey League from 1926 to 1937. He was a member of two Stanley Cup championship teams, the New York Rangers in 1928, and the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1932. Chabot played for the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Black Hawks, Montreal Maroons, and New York Americans. Chabot won the Vezina Trophy in 1934-35 for being the league's best goaltender.

Playing career[edit]

During his stint with the Rangers, he was often credited as Lorne Chabotsky, in an attempt to garner more Jewish fans.[1] Chabot was also the goalie who was injured during the 1928 playoffs, forcing coach Lester Patrick into the goal for the remainder of the game.

Years after his retirement, he suffered from severe arthritis and was bedridden. He developed Bright's Disease and after a long bout with it, he died, five days after his 46th birthday.

In 1998, he was ranked number 84 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players. He was the only player on the list then eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame who has not been elected to it.

Chabot played in the two longest games in NHL history, losing the longest in 1935-36 and winning the second longest in 1932-33.

He was the first hockey player to appear on the cover of Time Magazine. [2]

Legacy[edit]

In the book 100 Ranger Greats (John Wiley & Sons, 2009) by Russ Cohen, John Halligan and Adam Raider, the authors ranked Chabot No. 95 on the all-time list of New York Rangers. In The Hockey News Collector's Edition "The Top 100 Players of All-Time" (October 2010) Lorne Chabot was rated as the 20th best goaltender. He is the only eligible goalie in the top 20 not inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, according to The Hockey News.[citation needed]
