Biographical Info

Drafted as an underage player by the New York Islanders, Bryan Trottier played his first game in 1975. In his second game, he had a hat trick and five points! He finished the year breaking rookie-scoring records and easily won the Calder Trophy. In 1978, he was the league’s top scorer and won the Hart Trophy as league MVP. In 1980, he won the first of four Islander Stanley Cups and picked up the Conn Smythe Trophy. He stayed in New York until 1990 when his defensive skills attracted the Pittsburgh Penguins. His presence was the missing link as Pittsburgh won two successive Cups in 1991 and 1992. He retired after the second cup but returned in 1993 as a player-coach. He then joined the Avalanche in 2000 as an assistant coach and won yet another ring. He is also one of only eight NHL players with multiple 5-goal games.
