One of the game’s greatest scorers, the “Golden Brett” scored the third-most goals in NHL history (741). A member of two Stanley Cup winning teams, his championship winning goal for the Dallas Stars in the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals is one of the most memorable in league history.
Brett won the Hart Memorial Trophy and Lester B. Pearson Award in 1991 as the league’s most valuable player and was an eight-time NHL All-Star. A dual citizen, Brett was eligible to play for either Canada or the United States internationally and chose to join the American National Team. He was a member of the winning 1996 World Cup of Hockey team and is a two-time Olympian, winning a silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Brett was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, joining his father Bobby to become the first father-and-son pair of players in the Hall.
