Bryan Trottier

Bryan Trottier Bryan "Trots" Trottier was born on Juky 17, 1956 in Val Marie, Saskatchewan, Canada. As a kid, he was more interested in music and the rodeo, coming to the attention of the Islanders by chance. He played minor hockey in Swift Current and Lethbridge of the Western league and was drafted in 1974 by the New York Islanders as their 2nd pick, 22nd overall. Trots made a huge splash in his first season, putting up 95 points and winning the Calder Trophy as the best rookie in the NHL. His offensive numbers were consistent through the next decade, but Trottier combined his scoring abilites with an attitude steeped in hard work and playing two-way hockey. He was an integral part of the New York Islander dynasty that won four Stanley Cups between 1980-83.

Trottier spent 15 years with the Islanders and left in 1990 as their all-time leading scorer. He signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins and his leadership is considered key in the Pens back-to-back Stanley Cup victories in 1991-92. After three seasons in Pittsburgh he would retire from hockey, but only as a player, as he joined the Penguins as an assistant coach. His coaching stint also landed him in Colorado as an assistant, where he helped the Avalanche win a Stanley Cup in 2002. That performance led to his hiring as the head coach of the New York Rangers in the 2002-03 season. His stint in the Big Apple though was short lived as the high price Rangers struggled and he was fired half way through the regular season.
