From 1943 to 1948, the series was revived and featured many sporting figures aside from hockey and were handed out by Montreal radio station CHLP. The earlier photo's are in red, and later reproductions are in black and white for the later series.
Newsy Lalonde was a natural choice to replace Hart, who found the expanding season schedule to be too grueling to encompass his growing outside interests. As Lalonde had left the Canadiens in the trade for Aurel Joliat eleven seasons earlier, there were no present Canadiens players acquainted with his temperment from that era. They would soon learn the demanding Lalonde was a difficult to please taskmaster.
