1911 Stanley Cup Champion
David Bruce Ridpath born in 1884 in Lakefield. He was a high scoring right winger 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.
