Frederick Hugh "Old Eagle Eyes" Lehman - Born October 27, 1885 in Pembroke, Ontario – Died April 12, 1961 in Toronto, Ontario was a Canadian ice Hockey goaltender and coach.

- Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League Champion 1906
(Citizen Shield Winners) with Pembroke Lumber Kings / Pembroke Hockey Club.

- Paterson Cup Champion / Pacific Coast Hockey Association Champion 1912 with New Westminster Royals.

- Pacific Coast Hockey Association Champion 1915, 1918, 1921, 1922 with Vancouver Millionaires and 1923, 1924 with Vancouver Maroons

Lehman holds the PCHA records for most games played by a goalie (262), most wins (142) and most shutouts (17).
PCHA First All-Star Teams 1916, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923 and PCHA All-Star Teams 1912 , 1914, 1915, 1924.

The PCHA merged with the WCHL, which became the WHL in 1925, and then the league folded in 1926 and Lehman signed with the newly formed Chicago Black Hawks for their inaugural NHL season in 1926-27.

Lehman won his 1st NHL game, a 4-1 victory vs Toronto St. Patricks on Nov. 17, 1926 at Chicago Coliseum, and at 41 years, 21 days old.... set a NHL league record for the oldest goalie to win his debut. That mark stood until emergency backup David Ayres got the win for the Carolina Hurricanes against the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 6-3 victory on Feb. 22, 2020, at 42 years, 194 days old.

Lehman got his 1st shutout vs Montreal Canadiens on December 11, 1926 at The Forum in a 3-0 Chicago win. Lehman had 5 shutouts in his first NHL season.

Hugh Lehman was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1958.

Lehman was among the first goalies to leave his net to play the puck and earned the nickname "Old Eagle Eyes" because of his ability to spot loose pucks that were shot in, track them down, get control and then pass up ice to his teammates.
