Grant Fuhr - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Grant Scott Fuhr (September 28, 1962-) holds the records for longest rookie undefeated steak in goal (23 games), most assists in a single season by a goalie (14) and most games in a season (79) as well as the most consecutive games played (76) by a netminder in a single season. Grant played two seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Victoria Cougars, taking them to the Memorial Cup in 1981 and then was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers with the eighth overall pick of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. Fuhr beat out potential number one goalie Andy Moog for the starting job and handled the majority of the load in 1981-82. He posted an incredible 28-5-14 record and a 3.31 goals against average in 48 games his rookie year, finishing second to fellow Hall of Famer and New York Islanders goalie Billy Smith. Still relatively young in the NHL having recently merged after the collapse of the World Hockey Association, Edmonton was building a team filled with young stars and future Hall of Famers that included Fuhr, Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Jari Kurri and Paul Coffey. The extremely potent offense the Oilers assembled in front of the stellar goaltending tandem of Fuhr and Moog helped dethrone the Islanders who won four straight Stanley Cup titles (1980-1983). In 1983, Edmonton made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup finals. Over the middle and second half of the 1980s, Grant Fuhr and the Edmonton Oilers won five Stanley Cups (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1990). In 1990, with Moog have been traded to the Boston Bruins in 1987, Fuhr combined with Bill Ranford to capture the Oilers fifth Cup in eight years. In 1987-88, Grant won his only Vezina Trophy as he led the NHL in games (75) wins (40), shots against (2,066), saves (1,820) shutouts (4) and minutes (4,304).

He played 19 years in the NHL with the Oilers (1981-1991), the Toronto Maple Leafs (1991-1993), the Buffalo Sabres (1993-1995), the Los Angeles Kings (1995), the St. Louis Blues (1995-1999) and the Calgary Flames (2000-01). In 1993-94 Fuhr and Dominik Hasek won the William M. Jennings Trophy as they combined to allow the fewest goals in the NHL with the Sabres. Grant Fuhr had the pleasure of playing alongside some of the best goalies in the league during his tenure like Moog and Ranford in Edmonton, Darren Puppa and Rick Wamsley in Toronto, Dominik Hasek in Buffalo, Kelly Hrudey in Los Angeles and John Casey and Jamie McClennan in St. Louis. He also played with some of the greatest players in NHL history including Gretzky, who considered Fuhr the “greatest goaltender in NHL history.” In 1984 and 1987, Fuhr played ion the international stage as he led Canada to two gold medals in the Canada Cup. The six-time NHL All-Star finished his career with a 403-295-114 record, 25 shutouts and a 3.38 career GAA over 868 career regular season games. In the playoffs, Grant Fuhr added a 92-50 record with shutouts and a 2.92 GAA in 150 Stanley Cup playoff games capturing five league titles. Grant Fuhr was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003. Following his playing days, Grant has served as an NHL goaltending coach with the Phoenix Coyotes.
