Biography

Sigurður Franklin Fredrickson (June 3, 1895 – May 28, 1979) was a Canadian ice hockey player who was significant to both the amateur and professional sport as it evolved in North America in the early 20th century. Fredrickson's career was interrupted by military service during World War I and prematurely ended by a knee injury in 1931.

The Icelandic spelling of his last name is Friðriksson and the alternate English spelling Frederickson.

Amateur career

Fredrickson attended Kelvin Technical Institute and Central Collegiate before enrolling at the University of Manitoba law school, where he captained the hockey team. After serving in the 196th Battalion in World War I, he captained the Winnipeg Falcons, to the 1920 Allan Cup and then to the first gold medal offered in the sport at the 1920 Olympics at Antwerp.

Professional career

Professionally, Fredrickson played for the Victoria Cougars of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association and the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Detroit Falcons in the National Hockey League. He helped Victoria win the Stanley Cup in 1925. On December 21, 1928 Fredrickson was traded from the Boston Bruins to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Mickey MacKay. When the Stanley Cup was redone during the 1957–58 NHL season his name was engraved, contrary to NHL rules, on the Cup with the 1929 Bruins. Fredrickson was a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates the day Boston won the Cup. This made him ineligible to be on the cup with Boston.

Fredrickson coached hockey and lacrosse after his retirement. He coached the Pittsburgh Pirates during the 1929–1930 season, when he also played 9 games, but the team went 5-36-3 and moved to Philadelphia the next season before folding. In 1933, Fredrickson was named coach of the Princeton University ice hockey team. Fredrickson was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1958 and is also a member of the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. Fredrickson was of Icelandic and Irish heritage.
