Herbert "Herbie" Cain was born in 1913 and Died in 1982. He is the Cousin of My Great Grandmother , Clara . 

Herb Cain Played for the Montreal Maroons from 1933 to 1938

He won the Stanley Cup in 1935

He then played the 1938-39 Season with the Canadiens de Montreal before being Traded in 1939 to the Boston Bruins. In 1941 he again won the Stanley Cup. 

In 1944 He won the Scoring Title with a record 82 points in 42 games ..that Record stood until Gordie Howe won with 86 points, in 1951, taking more games to do so. 

In 1945 Herb Asked for a raise in his Contract, but was Denied by Boston GM Art Ross, who followed up the refusal by Sending Herb to the Hershey Bears, and Prohibited Any other Team from Trading for him. He went on to Win Hershey's Franchise first Calder Cup .

Not Long after, Herb was Diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease ..As the Illness ran its course, herb lost over 40 lbs and Doctors Told him to go home and enjoy whats left of his life. 

Refusing to give up, Herb Found an Experimental Syrum and a doctor willing to Try it on him. He Recovered Completely .

After Retiring to his Home town of Newmarket Ontario, he went on to Coach the Newmarket Junior Smoke Rings to 3 Straight titles. 

In 1982 he passed away. Whenever he wanted to see his Stanley Cups and Scoring Title, he had to pay admission to the Hall of Fame, as if he were a fan

Ironically after both he and Art Ross Retired, the Scoring Title was Named after the Bruins Manager who Buried him in the AHL even though HERB Set a record when he won it.


Herb Cain Became Hall of Fame Eligible in 1955. As of 2019 Thats an Unjustified 64 year Snub.
