Bob Davidson won two Stanley Cups as a Leaf, played in 490 games over 12 seasons and was awarded the Bickell Trophy by the Leaf Directors in 1995. Davidson had a reputation of being one of the best defensive forwards of his time and knew the game from top to bottom. Bob remained in the Leaf organization as a scout, chief scout and director of player personnel for over 30 years after he retired as a player.
Ted 'Teeder' Kennedy, a playmaking centreman, played on five Stanley Cup winning teams and won the Hart Trophy in 1955. The three time All-Star was awarded the Bickell Trophy twice. An excellent puck handler and playmaker, Teeder played in 696 career games scoring 231 goals and adding 329 assists. Kennedy was inducted into the Hockey hall of Fame in 1966.
Sid Smith, who led the Leafs in playoff scoring in his rookie year, went on to win three Stanley Cups, was awarded the Lady Byng twice and was an All-Star three times. A captain for only one season, Smith played 601 games for the Leafs totalling 369 points. Ted Kennedy's left-winger for most of his career, Sid's retirement came as a surprise in 1958 since he was still a very effective member of the Leaf squad.
Jim Thomson, a dependable defenceman who played for the Leafs in 787 games over 12 seasons, was an All-Star twice and won the Stanley Cup four times. Quietly efficient, Jim led the Leafs in assists in 1947-48. Brought in by the Leafs in 1945, his ability allowed him to remain with the Leafs after the regulars returned from war.
