Join us this Saturday, March 15th for an autograph signing with Hall of Fame Goalie Grant Fuhr of the Edmonton Oilers.
Exerpt from the Edmonton Oilers Blog…
From the moment he made his NHL debut against the Winnipeg Jets on October 14, 1981, to the Edmonton Oilers elimination in the first round of the 1989 Playoffs at the hands of Wayne Gretzky and the Los Angeles Kings, no goaltender had accomplished more during that same period of time than Grant Fuhr. While his first eight years in the National Hockey League featured many ups and downs, few had ever put together such a run from the start of their career as the former Victoria Cougars puck stopper.
Fuhr not only backstopped the Oilers to four Stanley Cup Championships in five years but was widely recognized as being the best netminder in the business, despite having won just one Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goalie. His presence in goal during international tournaments, be it for the NHL or Team Canada, and his ability to raise his level of play come crunch time, aka: the playoffs, spoke volumes about the kid from Spruce Grove.
