Bertram Orion "Pig Iron" Corbeau (1894–1942), Toronto St. Patricks defenseman.
Penetanguishene, Ontario native Corbeau also played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Tigers.
He was a member of the 1916 Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup-winning team, when the Canadiens was still a member of the National Hockey Association (NHA).
Corbeau died in a boating disaster in Georgian Bay, Ontario, in September 1942 when his boat struck a sand bar and sank. Of the 42 persons aboard, 25 died, including Corbeau.
