Bio

Mike Vernon Bio

Vernon's NHL accomplishments belie his small (5-foot-9, 175 pounds) stature. He's a two-time Stanley Cup champion, winner of the Conn Smythe and Jennings trophies, and an NHL Second-Team All-Star in 1988-89 who retired after 19 seasons with 389 victories.

The Calgary native was selected by the hometown Calgary Flames in the third round (No. 56) of the 1981 NHL Draft. Vernon made his NHL debut as a 19-year-old on Dec. 12, 1982, but it wasn't until 1985-86 that he began to see regular playing time with the Flames. After going 9-3 with three ties during the regular season, Vernon became the Flames' starter during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and helped them reach the Final for the first time, where they lost to the Montreal Canadiens.
