Early Life and Education
Jack Adams of Richfield, Minnesota inherited his artistic ability from his grandfather. During high school he entered an annual competition hosted by Fisher Body for young car designers – winning with his sleek black high-finned model!
Adams learned quickly despite being unable to write. His father encouraged him to study law; but John initially declined. Later, Richard Cranch introduced John to Abigail Smith whom he initially did not like due to her awkward and unattractive nature. But eventually they became close; though her physical appearance turned him off for awhile.
Adams was well known as an influential coach, yet also deeply cared for his players. He would give them bus tickets to Florida or let them visit family during stretch runs – his players respected him as a mentor.
Adams made his professional debut with Toronto Arenas of the NHL and quickly established himself as an aggressive, physical player. After being traded to Vancouver of the PCHA in December 1919 and flourishing on that team; particularly centreing a line with Alf Skinner and Smokey Harris while leading their league in scoring during 1921-22.
By 1946-47, Adams had led his team, then known as the Red Wings, to three Stanley Cup championships and established an extensive farm system which produced such NHL greats as Alex Delvecchio, Terry Sawchuk, Ted Lindsay and Red Kelly – just to name a few.
He earned his nickname of “The Iron Grizzly” due to his hardball tactics when it came to re-signing players and was even honored with an award named after him from his team, The Red Wings.
Adams excelled at Hoquiam High School, setting all-time scoring, games played, points per game and all-state honors as a senior. Now volunteering at Grays Harbor Community Hospital.
After retiring as a player, Adams became coach of the Detroit Cougars (later Red Wings). Under his tutelage they won two Stanley Cups. Although known for his tough manner and hard stance, he cared deeply for his players; Duff details tales such as Adams giving Ted Lindsay tickets to Florida to help treat a cold or permitting Mud Bruneteau visit a dying relative during a playoff run. After retirement as coach he served on WUNC-FM administrative boards as well as University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Journalism’s School of Journalism while participating in Presidential Sports Fitness program activities as well as writing short stories, family histories, and genealogy works.
Adams started his professional hockey career in 1914 with Fort William Maple Leafs of the National Midget Hockey League (NMHL), then later Calumet Miners. Known for his physical play and hard hits, Adams eventually joined Toronto Arenas of the NHL and quickly rose through their ranks to become their leading scorer; scoring six goals during 1921-22 season before appearing in two Stanley Cup finals against Vancouver Millionaires.
He has appeared in movies such as Facade, Weather Girl, 2:13, and 6 Month Rule and TV shows such as Numb3rs, Commander in Chief, Friday Night Lights, Without A Trace Lost Cold Case Heartland Lie to Me Ghost Whisperer among many more.
