Lynn Patrick with dad Lester and brother Muzz

Lynn Patrick, along with his brother "Muzz", is ranked amongst the greatest all-around athletes in the history of sport on Vancouver Island. Lynn was one of the city's best rugby players in the 1930's while playing for the BC Rep team. He was the interscholastic sprint champion at Vic High School and he enjoyed a professional career playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the New York Rangers. His highlights include catching a 68-yard touchdown pass as a Bomber, which was the longest in CFL history at the time. Twice he led the Rangers in scoring and he and his brother "Muzz" were part of the 1939 - 1940 Stanley Cup winners. He went on to coach the Rangers and then joined the Boston Bruins in 1950 with who he remained until becoming the first general-manager of the St. Louis Blues. He hired Scotty Bowman as coach and the team took three Stanley Cup finals.
