Bruce Ridpath | 1911 Stanley Cup Champion

Bruch Ridpath

From Lakefield (Selwyn now), Ontario

David Bruce Ridpath was a professional ice hockey player and general manager.

David Ridpath was a member of the 1911 Stanley Cup champion Ottawa Senators.

Ridpath was on his way to a glorious hockey legacy before tragedy struck. On Toronto’s busy Yonge Street an automobile ran into him, fracturing his skull. Though he attempted a comeback, the accident cut his career short in 1912.

Ridpath died in 1925 at the age of 40 at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.
