holds the record for being the shortest National Hockey League player in history. A goaltender of 5 feet 3 inches in height, Worters was born in Toronto, Ontario, on October 19th, 1900. Beginning his NHL career at the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1925, Worters was one of the outstanding goaltenders of his era, and he achieved 66 shutouts in his career. He was also the first NHL goaltender to keep shutouts in two games in succession. In 1937, Worters retired, and among his other career achievements were winning the Hart Memorial Trophy in 1929 and the Vezina Trophy in 1931. On the back of winning the Vezina Trophy, for being the NHL’s best goaltender, Worters was awarded a season contract worth $8,500. At the time this was the biggest contract a NHL goaltender had ever been awarded. In 1969, 12 years after his death, Worters was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
