Biographical Info

Steven Rice played eight seasons in the NHL in the 1990s. Rice was drafted 20th overall by the New York Rangers in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. Following his outstanding performance at the 1991 World Junior Hockey Championships, in which he captained Canada to the gold medal, he was considered one of the top young power forward prospects in the game. In the summer of 1991, he was sent to the Edmonton Oilers. Rice spent most of his first two seasons there with their AHL affiliate, but established himself as a full-time NHL player in 1993–94 scoring 17 goals. Following that season, he signed free-agent offer sheet with the Hartford Whalers. He retired at the age of 27. He came out of retirement in 2002, playing with the Cambridge Hornets until 2006, and then briefly for the Brantford Blast in the same league before retiring in 2006.
