Lorne "Chabotsky" Chabot (October 5, 1900 in Montreal, Quebec - October 10, 1946) was a Canadian ice hockey goaltender.

Lorne played in the National Hockey League from 1926 to 1937. During this time, he played for the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Black Hawks, Montreal Maroons, and New York Americans. Lorne won the 1935 Vezina Trophy for being the league's best goaltender. His name was engraved on the Stanley Cup with Rangers in 1928, and Maple Leafs in 1932.

During his stint with the Rangers, he was often credited as Lorne Chabotsky, in an attempt to garner more Jewish fans.[1] Chabot was also the goalie who was injured during the 1928 playoffs, forcing coach Lester Patrick into the goal for the remainder of the game.

Years after his retirement, he suffered from severe arthritis and was bedridden. He developed Bright's Disease and after a long bout with it, he died, five days after his 46th birthday.

In 1998, he was ranked number 84 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players. He was the only player on the list then eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame who has not been elected to it.

Chabot played in the two longest games in NHL history, losing the longest in 1936 and winning the second longest in 1933.

He was the first hockey player to appear on the cover of Time Magazine [1]


In the book 100 Ranger Greats (John Wiley & Sons, 2009) by Russ Cohen, John Halligan and Adam Raider, the authors ranked Chabot No. 95 on the all-time list of New York Rangers.
