Bio

Kelly Buchberger Bio

Buchberger carved out a long NHL career as a checking forward who provided teams with a physical presence and was part of Stanley Cup championship teams with the Edmonton Oilers in 1987 and 1990.

Born in Langenburg, Saskatchewan, Buchberger was selected by the Oilers in the ninth round (No. 188) of the 1985 NHL Draft. He was chosen after his first season with Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League. The Oilers sent him back to Moose Jaw for the 1985-86 season, and he spent 1986-87 with Nova Scotia of the American Hockey League before making his NHL debut May 17, 1987, against the Philadelphia Flyers, in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Buchberger was scoreless in three games but got his name on the Cup for the first time when the Oilers won Game 7 for their third championship in four years.
