|Letter from Conn Smythe to Abp. McNeil,
May 3, 1932
Archbishop McNeil fonds
Smythe was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 1958. The Conn Smythe Trophy, created in honour of Smythe's contribution to hockey, has been presented annually to the most valuable player for his team in the Stanley Cup playoffs since 1965. Indoor lacrosse, also known as box lacrosse or boxla, replaced the field version of the game in the 1930s and is the official sport of the Canadian Lacrosse Association.
