Albert Charles "Babe" Siebert (January 14, 1904 in Plattsville, Ontario, Canada – August 25, 1939) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger and defenceman who played 14 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Maroons, New York Rangers, and Boston Bruins.

Playing career

He won 2 Stanley Cups, in 1926 with the Montreal Maroons and with the New York Rangers in 1933. He was appointed head coach of the Montreal Canadiens and has the unique distinction of being the only NHL coach to never win, lose or tie a game because he died at the age of only 35 in a drowning accident, in Lake Huron, shortly after he was hired before the 1939–40 season started. This left his family in such financial distress that the NHL held a memorial game for him, the third all-star game in NHL history. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1964.

While with the Maroons, Babe was the left winger of the potent "S Line". Opposite him was Hooley Smith and Nels Stewart centred the line.
