Glenn Hall is known as “Mr. Goalie”. He started the “butterfly” style of goaltending and is one of the best goalies to play the game. He backstopped the Chicago Black Hawks to their Stanley Cup win in 1961 and led the St. Louis Blues to the Stanley Cup finals in 1968, 1969, and 1970.  Glenn had a 552 consecutive games streak – amazing considering he didn’t wear a mask for most of his career.

He received the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1968 for his play during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Glenn is the only player to be voted First All-Star on three different teams.  He was voted first-team All-Star seven times.
