Art Ross Memorial Trophy

Arthur Howie "Art" Ross (January 13, 1886-August 5, 1964) was an ice hockey player, referee, coach and manager. Ross played defense for 14 years, and was on two Stanley Cup winners -- with the now defunct Kenora in 1907 and the Montreal Wanderers in 1908. He then became a referee, and finally manager/coach of the Boston Bruins when they joined the National Hockey League. He coached them to three Stanley Cup winners.

In 1945 he was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Since the 1947-48 season, the Art Ross Trophy has been given to the NHL's player with the highest combined total of goals and assists during the regular season .
