Neil Colville

Biography:Neil Colville (August 4, 1914 - December 26, 1987) was a professional ice hockey player. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, he played for the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League with his brother Mac, winning the Stanley Cup in 1940.

Position: Center Height: 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) Weight: 180 lbs (82 kg) Colville joined the Rangers' farm team in 1934 and quickly made his way to the pros by 1936, centering the "Bread Line" with his brother and Alex Shibicky, where he played until World War II. During the war, he and his brother were stationed in Ottawa and played on the army's Ottawa Commandos team, winning the Allan Cup in 1942.

After the war, they both returned the Rangers, this time as defensemen, the first pairs of brothers to ever do so in the NHL. Neil was just as good at defense as he was on offense, becoming the first player to be named to All-Star Teams as both a forward and a defenseman.

He retired in 1949 and became the Rangers' youngest coach a year later, but he was forced to resign due to health problems halfway through his second season. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1967. He died in 1987 and there is a memorial bench in his honor at the Gary Point Park in Steveston, British Columbia.
