Cyclone Taylor Info
Frederick "Cyclone" Taylor
Frederick "Cyclone" Taylor won the Stanley Cup in 1909 with the Ottawa Senators, and in 1915 with the Vancouver Millionaires (Vancouver's only Stanley Cup Champions).
After watching Taylor score four dazzling goals for Ottawa on January 11, 1908, Canada's Governor General Earl Grey enthused within earshot of a reporter that Taylor was "a cyclone if ever I saw one." The name stuck.
"Cyclone" Taylor was considered to be hockey's first true superstar, and his sporting prowess was so spectacular it has become legendary.
After playing for the Ottawa Senators, and the Renfrew Millionaires, for a salary, at the time, greater than Canada's Prime Minister, Sir Wilfred Laurier, Cyclone moved west to star with the Vancouver Millionaires. He leads them to the CUP in 1915, and once again became the most famous man in Canada.
Cyclone lived to the age of 93, and was famous for among other things, the goal he scored while skating "backwards."
In recognition of his dedication to hockey in British Columbia, the BCAHA donated a trophy in his honour, which has become emblematic of the Junior "B" Hockey Championship of British Columbia.
This picture is of Cyclone Taylor (at right) and King Clancy.
Both of which were two of hockey's first superstars.
We wish to thank the folks at Cyclone Taylor Sports for some of the information on this page and some of the pictures. In 1957, Cyclone's oldest son, Fred Taylor Jr., opened CYCLONE TAYLOR SPORTS. (www.cyclonetaylor.com) And for the last 43 years, the store has continued to grow and prosper. The store is now run by Fred's two sons, Rick and Mark Taylor.
Cyclone Taylor was not the only hockey player in the family. His Grandson, Mark Taylor played 12 years of professional ice hockey, which included 4 years in the NHL, and 5 years in Europe.
