  • Bernie Parent - Philadelphia Flyers - goalie - orange jersey
  • Born Bernard Marcel Parent on 3rd April in Montreal, Quebec he is better known as Bernie Parent.

    Parent retired in February 1979 when his amazing career was sadly cut short after a hockey stick entered the right eye hole of his mask damaging his vision permanently.

    His (number 1) jersey number was retired in his honour and he was welcomed to the hockey Hall of Fame in 1984.

    He has been ranked 63rd in The Hockey News list of the 100 greatest players of all time.

    Since his retirement he has remained involved with the game in a different way, co-owning a rink.

    Parent’s early life was unusual for a professional player of his talents.

    A well-quoted fact about him is that he didn’t learn to skate until he was 11 years old. He got off to a wobbly start, but he persevered and went further than anyone could have expected.

    Another well-known attribute of the player was his speech, he conducted interviews in his first language, French, and when excited his grasp of English was a source of much humor.

    Parent was a superstitious player, with strict pre game rituals (involving much sleep, and eating steak) and never appeared minus his mask at any point on the ice, even when entering and leaving the rink.

    Bernie Parent began his career as a professional with the Boston Bruins in the 1965-1966 seasons but the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft saw him snapped up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Over the next few seasons he became an indispensable goalie. His transfer to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1971 was a direct result of the Flyers attempts to secure better offensive players.

    It was a good move for him and he played well, developing as a player and improving.

    This period is often regarded as when Parent developed the skills that would serve him so well in the future.

    In 1972 Parent became the first player to make the leap from NHL to the World Hockey Association, joining the Miami Screaming Eagles, later the Philadelphia Blazers. He played 63 games with them before leaving following a contract dispute and returning to the NHL.

    His next two seasons were his best. He shared the Vezina Trophy and led the Philadelphia Flyers to topping the West Division.

    He then won the Conn Smythe trophy. This period of constant awards, trophies and admiration led to the penning of a popular catch-phrase, (all together now) “Only the Lord saves more than Bernie Parent”.

    Unfortunately, injury stopped his reign in the 1975-1976 seasons and he was sidelined, after playing just a handful of games.

    He experienced difficulties in the time that followed, although he continued to play well generally. Advice from his childhood hero Jacques Plante helped him to regain his mastery of the game and he steadily improved.

    His place in hockey history is assured, and he still has legions of fans who remember him fondly as their legend.

    Parent retired in February 1979 when his amazing career was sadly cut short after a hockey stick entered the right eye hole of his mask damaging his vision permanently. His (number 1) jersey number was retired in his honour and he was welcomed to the hockey Hall of Fame in 1984. He has been ranked 63rd in The Hockey News list of the 100 greatest players of all time.

  • Don Cherry 2 - Boston Bruins - black sweatsuit
  • Donald Stewart "Grapes" Cherry was born on 5th February in Kingston, Ontario.

    He is best known as a coach and for his broadcasting career although he began as a player.

    He played junior hockey with the Barrie Flyers and Windsor Spitfires in the Ontario Hockey Association, making a promising figure on the ice.

    He joined the AHL’s Hershey Bears in 1954. Cherry played in many minor leagues and played just one game for the Boston Bruins in 1955.

    He blames a baseball injury on never making the NHL and retired from playing in 1970.

    After a spate of badly paid jobs, he became a coach for the AHL’s Rochester Americans.

    A few seasons in and he was voted Coach of The Year and later promoted up the coaching ladder to the NHL’s Boston Bruins.

    Cherry was fired by the Bruins after a major mistake when he lost a game as a result of the fact that he had too many players on the ice in a semi-final playoff in 1979.

    Cherry’s broadcasting career began when he was hired as a studio analyst for the spring playoffs in 1980.

    Whatever you think of him, love him or loathe him, Don Cherry has contributed a lot to the world of professional hockey and remains one of the most recognisable and popular Canadians in the broadcasting arena.

    Figure Stats

    Measures 7.25 inches at top of cap.

    Articulated at neck, shoulders and wrists.

    Includes stick and 6-inch wide by 3.5-inch deep custom base.

  • Grant Fuhr - Flames - Calgary Flames - Goalie - red jersey with white shoulders
  • Considered as one of the best goalies to have ever played on ice, Grant Fuhr has been named one of NHL's legends, and rightfully so.

    Drafted 8th overall in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, Fuhr then teamed up with Andy Moog to form one of the most formidable goaltending tandems in NHL history.

    During those championship glory years, Fuhr was selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game (1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, and 1989).

    On May 1993, another controversy arose when Fuhr's application for membership in Transit Valley Country Club was denied while those of his white teammates had been granted. The club's officials washed their hands clean and insisted that Fuhr's application was rejected not based on his race but on the information he supplied which was deemed "incorrect and incomplete".

    Fuhr had a great season sharing time in goal with the young prodigy, even winning the William M. Jennings Trophy (1994) for the fewest goals scored against in the league.

    Fuhr played with a renewed passion and energy that made the young players in the league look like amateurs. The "old man" played extraordinarily for the season and helped the team make the 1996 playoffs.

    But his run came to an abrupt end when Maple Leafs forward Nick Kypreos crashed into Fuhr causing the goalie to twist his leg and tear several of his knee ligaments, which practically ended his breakout season.

    Grant Fuhr officially announced on September 6, 2000 that he was done playing professional hockey. After his retirement, Fuhr held a post as goaltending coach with the Calgary Flames in the 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 seasons.

    Then in November 2003, in just his first year of eligibility, Fuhr was selected to the Hockey Hall of Fame becoming the first black hockey player to be inducted into the prestigious list.

    Figure Stats

    Measures 3 5/8 inches at top of mask.

    Articulated at neck, wrists and knees.

    Includes stick, puck and 6-inch wide by 3.5-inch deep custom base.

  • Alexei Kovalev - Montreal Canadiens - Red jersey, blue pants
  • Born Alexei Vyacheslavovich Kovalev on 24th February 1973 in Togliatti, U.S.S.R.

    Alex Kovalev began his professional hockey career when he was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.

    Kovalev has endorsed Warrior Hockey sticks since 2006, impressed by their custom designs and fresh approach.

    As it was, he did well, he played for his home city (Lada Togliatti) during the 1994-1995 NHL lockouts and scored 8 goals in 12 games, with the same number of assists as well.

    Kovalev’s best time was inarguably after he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in late 1998.

    He consistently gained points for his new team and in two consecutive seasons he had 76 and 95 points, good going for a player who some critics felt lacked refinement.

    He inspired many fans during this time and became a popular player.

    After an unremarkable year, Kovalev was on the move again, this time traded to the Montreal Canadiens in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

    He notched up an unimpressive 3 points in 12 games after this move but soon found his feet and settled into the new team in style… scoring 6 goals and 10 points in 11 games.

    It was in this season that his most memorable hockey moment occurred, a moment which gained such fame throughout the hockey world that it has sealed him into the memory of all fans.

    Canadiens fans were enthralled by the scene of Kovalev damaging the player of their arch-rival team.

    Kovalev’s most controversial moment was when he was accused of criticizing his team-mates, coach and the media in an interview he gave to the Russian media in Russian.

    Figure Stats

    Measures 5 1/8 inches at top of helmet.

    Articulated at neck, wrists and knees.

    Includes stick and 6-inch wide by 3.5-inch deep custom base.

  • Ryan Smyth 2 - Colorado Avalanche - Red jersey with blue sleeves
  • Born Ryan Alexander Gordon Smyth on February 21st, 1976 in Banff, Alberta, Canada, Smith entered NHL in 1994 when he was selected 6th overall by the Edmonton Oilers, a club he supported as a child.

    He played 12 seasons with the Oilers and was absolutely dedicated to them. He broke two of Oiler’s star Wayne Gretzky’s records by clocking up 20 goals on the power play in his second full season with the team. Then he broke the record for the fastest hat trick by an Oiler in October 2006. At the 2002 Winter Olympics, Smyth was an important part of the Gold medal winning team and in 2003 he signed another 2 year contract with the Oilers. Smyth has played 60 games in the Olympics, more than any other Canadian. His country is rightly proud of him; he is known as Captain Canada and was made captain of Team Canada for the World Championships for five years (2001 to 2005).

    In 2007, after 12 successful years with the Oilers, Smyth was unexpectedly traded to the New York Islanders.

    In July 2007 Smyth joined the Colorado Avalanche.

    Figure Stats

    Measures 5.25 at top of helmet.

    Articulated at neck, wrists and knees.

    Includes stick and 6-inch wide by 3.5-inch deep custom base.

  • Tony Esposito 2 - Montreal Canadiens - Goalie - White jersey with leather mask
  • Tony Esposito revolutionized the way goaltending is done in the NHL with his brilliant flop-on-the-ice saves and for his now famous his legs-open "butterfly" style.

    Esposito's career started when he turned pro with Vancouver in the Western Hockey League in 1967-68 and played with the Houston Apollos in the Central League the following year.

    He first played in the NHL for the Montreal Canadiens and his half-season there went uneventful. But prior to the 1969-70 NHL season, the Chicago Black Hawks claimed Tony off the waivers, known then as the "intra-league draft" when Montreal left him unprotected for the draft.

    Tony "0" also shared the goaltending duties for Team Canada in the Summit Series in 1972. Later in his career, Esposito gained a reputation as one of the grand old men of the NHL.

    Disappointed with the way his teammates were performing in Chicago, Tony helped the Hawks turn their game around in 1982 and started to play like he was a decade younger in the playoffs despite being the oldest player in the league.

    Esposito was released by the Hawks in 1984 and soon retired from professional play in 1985. Not long after his stint in Pittsburgh, Tony joined his brother Phil in the front office of the expansion team Tampa Bay Lightning as chief scout in 1991.

    Tony "0" was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988 and was one of just eight goalies to win the Vezina Trophy catching the puck right-handed.

    Figure Stats

    Measures 5.25 inches at top of head.

    Articulated at wrists and knees.

    Includes stick and 6-inch wide by 3.5-inch deep custom base.
