This 8 ½ x 3 ½ color postcard has been signed by Brad McCrimmon. The Boston Bruins selected McCrimmon in the 1st round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, He began his NHL career in Beantown in 1979-80 and remained with the Bruins for 3 seasons. In the summer of 1982 the Flyers and Bruins pulled off a major trade where they exchanged Pete Peeters even up for Brad McCrimmon. McCrimmon spent the next 5 seasons with the Flyers and during that time he went to 2 Stanley Cup Finals under the guidance of head coach Mike Keenan. Brad next went to the Calgary Flames, where he played for 3 years and won his only Stanley Cup. He then finished out his career with stays in Detroit, Hartford and Phoenix. All told this defenseman played in 1222 games over the course of 18 NHL seasons.

Brad averaged over a PIM per game, winding up with a career total of 1416 PIMS. His most productive offensive seasons came with the Flyers, where he registered back-to-back double-digit goal totals in 1985-86 and 1986-87. McCrimmon was named a 2nd team NHL All Star in 1988 and also won the Plus/Minus Award and played in the NHL All Star game that same season. Since retiring, McCrimmon vigorously pursued a career in coaching. He served behind the bench for 14 seasons representing the Islanders, Saskatoon Blades, Flames, Thrashers and Red Wings. Brad had just taken over as Head Coach of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv in the KHL when he tragically lost his life on September 7th 2011 in a plane crash that killed 43 people including all of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv’s players and coaching staff.
