1941 - Johnny Quilty

Quilty recorded 34 points in 48 games to win the first Calder Memorial Trophy in Canadiens' history. He played two seasons with the Canadiens before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he played on the RCAF teams.

Quilty returned to the Canadiens in the 1946-47 season, playing 23 games over two seasons before leaving to play with the Boston Bruins. After six games in the Bruins organization, Quilty suffered a compound fracture in his leg and had to retire from the NHL.
