Hockey Player
    (January 17, 1965- )
    Born in Noranda, Quebec, Canada
    Drafted second overall by the Hartford Whalers in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft
    Forward for the Hartford Whalers (1983-89), New Jersey Devils (1989-90), Montreal Canadiens (1990-92) and the Ottawa Senators (1992-95)
    Also played for the Houston Aeros (1995-96), HC Bolzano, Wedemark Scorpions, EHC Olten (1996-97), Revierlöwen Oberhausen, SC Heriseau (1997-98), SC Langnau (1998), Kassel Huskies (1998-2001) and HC Thurgau (2001-02)
    He never lived up to his draft billing.
    His career was overshadowed by that of his younger brother, Pierre's.
    He was considered 'the forgotten Turgeon' by hockey pundits.
    He spent the majority of his NHL career on below average rosters.
    He became a journeyman in the European leagues following his departure from the Senators.
    He and Pierre are the first two brothers in NHL history to be selected in the No. 1 and 2 slots of the NHL Entry Draft, albeit in separate years. 
    He was considered a solid scorer, prior to suffering an abdominal injury that derailed his on-ice performance in later years.
    He was a member of the inaugural Senators team (1992-93).
    He provided veteran leadership for the young Senators in the team's first few seasons in the NHL.
    His 1994-95 Pinnacle trading card saw a surge in popularity during the mid 2010's, after it was revealed a young Patrick Kane was in the background.
    Kane's father confirmed Patrick was the child in the card, which helped increase the value of it.
