Biographical Info

Drafted by Boston in 1985, Bill Ranford served as their main goalie for one season. After Boston and Edmonton made a goaltending switch – Boston got Andy Moog – Ranford became an apprentice under the Oilers’ star goalie, Grant Fuhr. Ranford arrived just in time to earn a Stanley Cup. However, when Fuhr got appendicitis in 1989, Ranford ended playing for the remainder of the season, earning the Oilers a Stanley Cup in 1990 and the Conn Smythe trophy for himself. In 1991, he backstopped Canada to victory in the 1991 Canada Cup and was named tournament MVP. After he was traded to Boston mid-way through the 1995-96 season, he ended up in Washington, Tampa Bay, Detroit and then back in Edmonton before retiring in 2000. Bill Ranford is currently the goaltending coach for the Los Angeles Kings, and won two more Stanley Cups in 2012 and 2014 with the Kings.
