Bryan Trottier

One of the greatest two-way centers ever to play professional hockey, Bryan Trottier is finding success these days on the sidelines as a coach. Trottier was an assistant coach with the Colorado Avalanche in 2001 when the Denver-based team won the Stanley Cup. During his 18 seasons on the ice, Trottier played on six Stanley Cup-winning teams-including four consecutive wins with the New York Islanders (1980, 1981, 1982, and 1983) and two back-to-back wins with the Pittsburgh Penguins (1991 and 1992). In early June of 2002, Trottier, who ranks 12th on the National Hockey League's all-time scoring list and sixth on the NHL's all-time playoff scoring list, was hired as the head coach of the New York Rangers. Interestingly, the Rangers are the archrivals of the Islanders, the team for which Trottier played the bulk of his career.
