Jamie Macoun played more than 1,300 regular season and playoff games in the National Hockey League during a 17-year career as a stalwart defenceman for the Calgary Flames, Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings.
Along the way, Jamie was a member of two Stanley Cup champions (Calgary 1989, and Detroit 1998), represented Canada internationally, earning two silver medals at the IIHF World Championships in 1985 and 1991, and was part of one the largest trades in NHL history.
His career got its start in the Ontario Provincial Jr A hockey league, with Newmarket and Aurora. Undrafted in the NHL entry draft in 1979, Jamie headed to the United States, playing college hockey at Ohio State (1980-83). He signed with the Flames in 1983, where he would play for nine seasons.
His time in Calgary included being named to the NHL All-Rookie team (1983-84); 39 points and a +44 in his second season (1984-85); and a 40-point season, the highest in his career (1986-87). He also missed 17 months due to injuries suffered in an automobile accident. Doctors questioned if would ever play hockey again, due to nerve damage, but Jamie returned for the start of the 1988-89 season. Jamie and Ric Nattress formed one of the NHL’s top defensive pairings that season. Then in the playoffs, Jamie tallied nine points in 22 playoff games as the Flames went on to beat the Montreal Canadiens to win the franchise’s first Stanley Cup championship.
Off the ice, Jamie received the Ralph T. Scurfield Humanitarian Award – a Flames team award given each year to the player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, determination and leadership on the ice, combined with dedication to community service."
Jamie was involved in one of the largest trades in NHL history, a 10-player deal that sent him to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1992 along with Doug Gilmour. During his time in Toronto, the Leafs reached the Western Conference Finals twice. Jamie tallied 30 points in the 1993-94 season, before settling in to a more defensive-focused role with the Leafs until he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in March 1998.
Jamie provided the defensive presence the Wings needed, playing 22 games in the playoffs, and tallying four points as the Wings swept the Washington Capitals to win the Stanley Cup. The following season would be Jamie’s last, as he retired after the 1998-99 season.
Over the course of his NHL career, Jamie accumulated 76 goals and 282 assists in 1,128 regular season games and added another 42 points in 159 playoff games.
Internationally, Jamie played with Team Canada at three World Championships. He was a member of the silver medal-winning teams in 1985 in Czechoslovakia and 1991 in Finland, where he scored four goals and was named the best defenceman.
Mike Rogers enjoyed an impressive 12-year professional hockey career in the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Association, and followed that with another two decades as a well-respected pre- and post-game and colour commentator with the Calgary Flames. Mike’s professional career spanned 12 seasons, seven in the National Hockey League (1979-1986) with Hartford Whalers, New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers, and five in the World Hockey Association (1974-79) with the Edmonton Oilers and New England Whalers. His career featured a number of highlights, including: · In 1974, he was selected twice in amateur drafts – in the fifth round of the NHL draft by Vancouver, and in the second round of the WHA draft by Edmonton. · In 1980-81, he was the captain of the NHL’s Whalers. · In the WHA, he tallied 367 points in 396 games, including leading the Oilers in goals and points as a rookie in 1974-75, and the Whalers in scoring in 1978-79. · In the NHL, he tallied 519 points in 484 games, including leading the Whalers in scoring from 1979-81, and the Rangers from 1981-83. But perhaps the most notable accomplishment came over the course of his first three seasons in the NHL when Mike accomplished a feat only completed by three others – he tallied more than 100 points in each of those seasons. The others to score 100 or more points in their first three NHL seasons? Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Peter Stastny. Mike’s hockey career started in the Northeast Hockey Association, playing his minor hockey in the district of Renfrew for 11 years before moving on to the Calgary Centennials of the then-Western Canada Junior Hockey League (now the Western Hockey League). He played three seasons with the Centennials (1971-74), tallying 309 points in 199 games, and helping the team to the WCHL final in 1974. Mike continues to give a great deal of his time helping numerous charities raise funds in Calgary and surrounding areas.
