Steve Shutt - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Stephen John Shutt (July 1, 1952-), according to Geddy Lee of the Canadian band and 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee RUSH, introduced lead singer Lee to guitarist Alex Lifeson when they attended junior high school together in Toronto. Shutt was a potent scoring threat with the North York Ranger of the Ontario junior-B league and then joined the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Junior Hockey Association. He scored 144 goals and 116 assists in 196 games with the Marlboros (1969-1972). With no intentions of losing out on the scoring phenom, the Montreal Canadiens took Steve fourth overall in the 1972 NHL Entry Draft. Shutt took a couple years to find his form, but eventually teamed with fellow Hall of Famers Guy Lafleur and Jacques Lemaire to create one of the highest scoring lines in the National Hockey League. In his rookie campaign, Steve played a small role in getting the Canadiens to their 1972-73 Stanley Cup title. However, his numbers improved significantly with Lafleur and Lemaire and he led the NHL in goals with 60 in 1976-77, including league leading even strength goals (52) and game winners (9). In 1975-76, the Habs set an NHL and franchise record as they posted the astounding 60-8-12 record for 132 points – the best record of all-time. That year also began a string of four consecutive Stanley Cup title from 1976-1979, dominating Western Conference foes. The three-time NHL All-Star played 12 seasons in a Montreal sweater (1972-1984) and then was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in his final year (1984-85). Steve Shutt finished his career back in Montreal having amassed 424 goals and 393 assists for 817 points in 930 regular season games. He also had an incredible plus-393 plus/minus rating. In playoff contention, Steve also had 50 goals and 48 assists in 99 Stanley Cup games to capture five NHL titles. Steve Shutt was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1993. Following his playing days he served as both an NHL commentator and assistant coach.
