Bio

Brian Rolston Bio

Rolston, a center who played for five teams during 17 NHL seasons, owned one of the biggest slap shots in the League and was one of the few players who would use it regularly in shootouts and on penalty shots. He was 10-for-27 in the tiebreaker and scored on two of his three penalty shots.

The New Jersey Devils selected the Flint, Michigan, native in the first round (No. 11) of the 1991 NHL Draft. He played two seasons of college hockey at Lake Superior State and played for the United States at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics before joining the Devils in 1994-95, just in time to become a Stanley Cup champion for the only time in his career when New Jersey swept the Detroit Red Wings in the Final.
