Waghorne, Fred C (1866-1956)
Born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. Referee. He refereed for over 50 years and officiated at 2,400 games in his career (all pre NHL-era). He also introduced several innovations (e.g. the modern face-off style & use of the whistle) that have remained in the modern game. In 1900, he had a situation where a puck split in two and one half ended up in the goal, after much deliberation he ruled it as 'no goal' because the official definition of a puck included specific dimensions and since the piece of rubber in the goal did not meet these specifications, it could not be a puck. He therefore instituted the rule that the entire puck must cross the line for a goal to count.

Watts, Joseph 'Joe' (1925-1999)
Born in Rochester, New York, USA. Defenceman. His parents were Canadians and moved to Kingston, Ontario, Canada in the early 1930s. As a 14 year old he joined Kingston Juniors and three years later he was a PT instructor in the Canadian Navy during WWII. In November 1946, at the age of 21, he became Wembley Lions youngest ever team captain. He was suspended from coaching by the OHA for the 1951-52 season, for alleged fixing of Allan Cup quarter final games. He worked hard to try and clear his name regarding the allegations and before his death, wrote an affidavit explaining events regarding the Kingston Nylons, where he was assistant/playing coach, during the Allan Cup quarter finals. His son Dave told us, "He forcefully and eloquently maintained his lack of knowledge of the said events and believes they were railroaded by the OHA. Anyways, it's all there for the reading. He always had a love of hockey. He coached me in a couple of teams and coached the Kingston Junior B team from the late 50's or early 60's." In his later years he was involved with numerous local charities, led the singing at the annual Battle of the Atlantic commemorative service and sang the National Anthem at Kingston's OHL matches.
