12/12/1933 Eddie Shore ends Ace Bailey's career

Bailey's career came to an abrupt end when he was hit from behind by Eddie Shore of the Boston Bruins, apparently in retaliation for having been tripped by King Clancy moments earlier, and hit his head on the ice, fracturing his skull. It was feared that Bailey would not survive after severely injuring his head. Bailey did recover but never played hockey again.
