The Morbid Tale of the Two Georges

Every year, the National Hockey League in North America awards the Vezina Trophy for the top goalie of the year. It was first given to George Hainesworth. He had just finished his first season, 1926 to 1927, with the Montreal Canadiens and is still remembered as one of the best hockey goalies of all time. In fact, Hainesworth won the Vezina Trophy not just once but three times between 1926 and 1929. Ironically George Hainesworth had signed with the Canadiens to replace Georges Vezina, who died of tuberculosis in 1926.
