    Nice work Scotty Hockey. You are correct.
    It is "The Embalmer" himself, Alfred George "Alf" Pike.

    The pictures came from this Hall of Fame article. (scroll down about half way)

    Wikipedia: Alfred George "Alf" Pike (September 15, 1917 – March 1, 2009) Pike had the distinction of being a 22-year-old rookie on the Rangers team that won the 1940 Stanley Cup championship, but his career with the Rangers was interrupted by World War II. During the war, he left the NHLfor two years to serve in the Royal Canadian Air Force, based out of his hometown of Winnipeg. He returned to the Blueshirts in 1945 to play a total of 64 games over the next two seasons.
