Muller had a 19-season NHL career that included winning a Stanley Cup championship with the Montreal Canadiens in 1993. But he's likely to be remembered by many as the player taken No. 2 in the 1984 NHL Draft (by the New Jersey Devils) after Mario Lemieux was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins at No. 1.
The Devils selected Muller after he had 94 points (31 goals, 63 assists) in 49 games for Guelph of the Ontario Hockey League in 1983-84, as well as playing for Canada at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics. He quickly became a cornerstone player in New Jersey, helping the Devils advance to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in 1987-88, his first season as captain, by scoring 37 goals and finishing with 94 points.
