Brit Selby (born March 27, 1945) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis Blues. He also played in the World Hockey Association (WHA) for the Quebec Nordiques, New England Whalers and Toronto Toros. He was the Calder Memorial Trophy winner for the league's top rookie as a member of the Maple Leafs in 1965–66.

Playing career

Believed by many to be one of the weakest Calder choices in history -- his total of 27 points is the lowest scoring total by a Calder-winning forward since 1938, when seasons were 48 games long -- Selby held a points-per-game average of 0.337 in 1966, which until Barret Jackman won the Calder in 2003, stood as the lowest PPG average of any (non-goalie) Calder winner in history, and remains the lowest such total for any Calder-winning forward.

Selby played for the Maple Leafs, Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis Blues. After being sent down to the minors by St. Louis in the 1972 season, Selby signed with the upstart World Hockey Association, playing for the New England Whalers as a member of their 1973 championship team, along with several other ex-Maple Leafs. He was traded to the Toronto Toros the following year and played parts of two seasons before retiring.

Selby finished his NHL career with 55 goals and 62 assists for 117 points in 347 games, adding 74 points in 153 WHA games. He is currently a history teacher at North Toronto Collegiate Institute.
