Encyclopedia > Dan Bouchard

Dan Bouchard (born December 12, 1950, Val-d'Or, Quebec) was a Canadian goaltender who played in the National Hockey League with the Atlanta Flames, Quebec Nordiques, and Winnipeg Jets. He was originally drafted by the Boston Bruins, but made his league debut in 1972-73 after the Flames claimed him in the expansion draft. After eight seasons in Atlanta, the team moved to Calgary, Alberta in the summer of 1980. Halfway through the 1980-81 season, he was traded to the Quebec Nordiques for Jamie Hislop. He then led Quebec to their first playoff appearance since the 1979 WHA-NHL merger. The following season was a magical one as the Nordiques lost in the semi-finals to the New York Islanders, who would go on to win their 3rd straight Stanley Cup. Along the way Quebec disposed of the hated Montreal Canadiens and then Boston in a pair of thrilling series. Each went down to the wire in the final game, but they held on to win. In the 1985-86 season he was traded to the Jets where he retired after losing in the opening round to the Calgary Flames.
