From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wilfred Kennedy "Bucko" McDonald (October 31, 1914 – July 22, 1991) was a Canadian professional hockey and lacrosse player, coach, and politician.

Born in Fergus, Ontario, he played for the Detroit Red Wings, Toronto Maple Leafs, and New York Rangers. He won 3 Stanley Cups in his career, in 1936 and 1937 with Detroit and in 1942 with Toronto.

McDonald was also an accomplished lacrosse player, who won a Mann Cup and was inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1971[1]. The Ontario Lacrosse Association honoured McDonald by naming an award after him; the highest-scoring player is awarded the Bucko McDonald Trophy.

In 1945, he was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the Ontario riding of Parry Sound. A Liberal, he was re-elected in 1949 and 1953. After leaving politics, he was the head coach for the Rochester Americans. He coached Bobby Orr when he was 11 and 12[2].
