Bryan Trottier has his name etched on the Stanley Cup six times as a player, four with the great New York Islanders teams of the early eighties and twice more in the nineties with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Bryan Trottier, the New York Islanders' second choice in the 1974 NHL draft, set an NHL rookie record with 95 points and won the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie in 1976. Trottier has also collected some other pieces of hardware during his 18-year career, earning the Art Ross and Hart Trophies in 1979, the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1980, and the King Clancy Trophy in 1989. Trottier scored at least 103 points in a season six times and scored a career high 50 goals during the 1981-82 campaign as an Islander.

In addition to his scoring prowess, Trottier has also earned the reputation as being a dependable defensive centerman. Trottier, in the later years of his career, used his defensive skill to help the rebuilding Pittsburgh Penguins win Stanley Cup championships in 1991 and 1992. After retiring from hockey following the 1992 Cup win, Trottier took a front office position with the New York Islanders but returned for the 1993-94 season to play a final year with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Trottier has since coached with the Penguins, the AHL's Portland Pirates, and most recently with the Colorado Avalanche.

In 1997 Bryan Trottier was inducted into Hockey's Hall of Fame.
