Nolan, regarded as one of the game’s purest power forwards, played in 1,200 NHL games with Quebec/Colorado, San Jose, Toronto, Phoenix, Calgary and Minnesota during his 18-year career and posted 885 points (422 goals, 463 assists). Nolan appeared in 65 Stanley Cup Playoff games with Quebec, San Jose, Toronto and Calgary, collecting 40 points (21 goals, 19 assists).
A five-time NHL All-Star (1992 with Quebec, 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2002 with San Jose), Nolan provided one of the NHL’s most unforgettable All-Star memories at the 1997 contest in San Jose. Carrying the puck in alone on Eastern Conference goaltender Dominik Hasek, Nolan “called his shot,” pointing to the top-right corner of the net and then buried it there for his third goal of the game.
In 2002, he was one of the first eight players named to the men’s Canadian Olympic hockey team, which would go on to win the gold medal at the Salt Lake City Winter Games. He also won a gold medal for Canada at the 1997 World Championships, held in Helsinki.
