A NATURAL FORWARD, BABE SIEBERT FINISHED HIS CAREER AS A BLUE-LINER WITH THE CANADIENS, MAKING A SEAMLESS TRANSITION AND WINNING THE HART TROPHY AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

Albert "Babe" Siebert joined the Montreal Maroons at the beginning of 1925-26, winning the first of his two career Stanley Cups that season.

Siebert played left wing on the famed "S Line" along with Hooley Smith and Nels Stewart. After seven seasons with the Maroons, he was traded to the New York Rangers, where he spent two years, winning the Cup again in 1932-33. He was on the move again shortly thereafter, traded to the Boston Bruins, where he spent the next three seasons.

The Plattsville, Ontario native found his way back to Montreal in 1936, this time as a member of the Canadiens under new coach Cecil Hart, who also brought Howie Morenz back home to the Habs.

Having lost a step, Siebert moved back to defense where he not only held his own but actually improved his game, claiming the Hart Trophy as league MVP. Renowned for his offensive rushes and his outstanding defensive coverage, Siebert had eight goals and 20 assists in 44 regular season games.

Off the ice, Siebert spent all his time at his partially-paralyzed wife's side, helping and supporting her any way he could.

Just weeks after retiring in 1939, he was named head coach of the Canadiens. Unfortunately, the new coach drowned under still unclear circumstances while swimming at his summer home on Lake Huron. He remains the only NHL coach to have never won, lost, or tied a game.

Siebert's death left his family in financial difficulty and the NHL decided to help out by organizing a charity game in his memory at the Forum, in what was effectively the league's third All-Star Game.

Siebert was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1964.
