Biographical Info

Alberta’s favorite son, Lanny McDonald (HHOF ’92) was picked up by Toronto 4th overall in 1973. After a slow start, he started to find the net and joined Team Canada at the 1976 Canada Cup. He was beloved in Toronto and protesters greeted the staff of Maple Leaf Gardens when he was traded to Colorado in 1979. When the Rockies traded him to Calgary, McDonald began to play the best hockey of his career. In 1983, he scored a career-high 98 points and was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy. The jewel of his career was 1989 when he scored his 500th goal, his 1000th point, won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy and, after 15 seasons, the Stanley Cup. Lanny McDonald is always quick with a smile and a pat on the back, especially when working with children’s charities.
