Frank Herbert Eddolls (July 5, 1921 – August 13, 1961) was a defenseman in the National Hockey League who played for the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers, and coached the Chicago Black Hawks in 1954–55. He won the Stanley Cup with Montreal in 1946. Eddolls is perhaps best remembered as being a returning piece in one of the most lopsided trades of all time, which saw him being moved by the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for future Hockey Hall of Fame member Ted Kennedy, who was later voted by multiple publications to be one of the greatest hockey players of all time.
