Biographical Info

Denis Potvin (HHOF ’91) was drafted first overall by the New York Islanders in 1973. He became the first defenseman to score 1000 points and was the cornerstone of the New York Islander dynasty of the early 80’s. He amassed 54 points in his rookie year and won the Calder Trophy. Potvin won the Norris trophy three times (1976, 1978, 1979) and scored 101 points in 1979. He was captain of the Islanders when they won the Stanley Cup for four consecutive years – 1980 to 1983 – only the second team to do so. He retired from hockey in 1988 with 310 goals and 1052 points. He is now an analyst for Florida Panthers hockey broadcasts.
