Mike Gartner Bio

"How do you stop Mike Gartner?" It was a question NHL opponents pondered in the 1980s and '90s, season after season. They didn't come up with many good solutions.

In the world's fastest sport, Gartner was the fastest player. Unlike many quick skaters, Gartner could handle the puck, pass it and get off blistering drives in full flight. His arsenal of shots -- all varieties and from all distances -- made him one of hockey's most dangerous forwards. He could score from everywhere and get there faster than anyone. Woe to the wing and defenseman assigned to check him -- and double-woe to the goalies he faced.
