Bio

Luc Robitaille Bio

The No. 1 selection in the 1984 NHL Draft was an outsized center from Montreal who had just completed a 133-goal, 282-point season with Laval of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. His name was Mario Lemieux, and he drew raves in bundles and lived up to every one of them.

One hundred seventy picks later, another French-Canadian from Montreal was selected, three picks into the ninth round, by the Los Angeles Kings. Like Lemieux, Luc Robitaille was 18 years old. Unlike Lemieux, Robitaille, with an ungainly skating stride that was straight out of a rec league, was regarded as a prospect with not much more potential than a team mascot.
