Hall of Fame defenseman Allan Stanley, a member of four Stanley Cup-winning teams with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1960s, died Friday at age 87.

Nicknamed "Snowshoes" for his plodding style of skating, Stanley played for four of the Original Six teams after breaking into the NHL with the New York Rangers during the 1948-49 season. But it was with the Maple Leafs in the 1960s that he became known as one of the NHL's best defensive defensemen. He and longtime partner Tim Horton anchored a defense that helped Toronto win Cups in 1962, '63, '64 and '67.

I used to see Mr. Stanley around Fenelon Falls a lot when I was a kid. He was always eager to talk with the youngsters and was proud to show off his Stanley Cup rings. RIP.
