Biographical Info

Ian Turnbull was a natural defenseman who could easily join the rush. Drafted by Toronto in 1973, he paired up with Borje Salming and successfully protected their net. However, in 1974, a mid-ice collision resulted in severe tears in his knee. Recovering after a year, he returned in 1977 where his career exploded again. In fact, he holds the records for most goals in a game by a defenseman: five goals in a 9-1 win over Detroit. In 1981, he moved to Los Angeles and then Pittsburgh before retiring in 1983. He is now a real estate magnate in California.
