Earl (Dutch) Reibel, who won two Stanley Cups with Detroit, dies at age 76

Reibel died Wednesday in Kitchener, Ont., where he was born in 1930, according to a death notice posted by the family. He joined the Red Wings in 1953 and helped the team capture back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1953-54 and 1954-55.

Reibel finished in the top 10 in NHL scoring in each of his first three years and won the Lady Byng Trophy in the 1956-57 season.

He was the only player to dethrone Gordie Howe as the Red Wings' top scorer between 1950 and 1964, beating him by four points in 1954-55.

Reibel was traded to Chicago in 1957 and played for the Boston Bruins the following season before his NHL career ended.
