Biographical Info

A late bloomer who caught the eye of NHL scouts during an extra season of junior hockey, Geoff Courtnall signed with the Boston Bruins in 1983 as a free agent. He cracked the line-up the next season and played for Boston until 1988, when he moved to the Edmonton Oilers just before the playoffs. Ironically, Courtnall ended up defeating his old team in the Stanley Cup finals (1988). His stay in Edmonton was over by the summer and he moved on to Washington for three seasons. Playing for Vancouver and St. Louis, Courtnall finished his 17-year NHL career with 908 total points…not bad for someone who was never drafted and never supposed to play!
