Encyclopedia > Steve Shutt

Steve Shutt (born July 1, 1952) is a Hall of Fame ice hockey player from Canada.


Born Stephen John Shutt in Willowdale, Ontario, Canada, as a youngster he displayed hockey skills that led to him playing for the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). With the Marlboros, Steve Shutt, Dave Gardner, and Billy Harris formed one of the most potent lines in OHL history. In 1971 Shutt was named to the league's Second All-Star Team and the following season to its First All-Star Team. Drafted by the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL) for the 1972-73 season, he was an integral part of a team that won five Stanley Cups. In 1976-77, Shutt was a key member of the Canadiens team that compiled the best regular season record in league history, losing only 8 games during an 80 game schedule. Partnered with Jacques Lemaire and Guy Lafleur to form the top line in the NHL, Shutt scored 60 goals, a league record for left-wingers. During his career with Montreal, he was named to the NHL First All-Star team in 1977, 1978, and 1980.


A lover of horses and an avid polo player, Steve Shutt, along with teammate Larry Robinson and local veternarian Dr. Gilbert Hallé, founded the Montreal Polo Club at Sainte-Marthe, Quebec.


Early in the 1984-85 season, Shutt was traded to the Los Angeles Kings. He retired at the end of the season after fourteen years in the league having scored 424 regular season goals, 393 assists, for 817 points in 930 games. In 99 playoff games, he scored 50 goals and added 48 assists. In 1993, Steve Shutt was inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame. Following his playing career, Shutt worked as a television hockey commentator but in 1993 to 1997, he worked on the Canadiens coaching staff.


On November 22, 2003, he participated with the Canadiens oldtimers against the Edmonton Oilers oldtimers in the Heritage Classic, the first outdoor game in the history of the NHL played at Commonwealth Stadium, in Edmonton, Alberta.


Shutt currently is touring Canada as a playing member of the Oldtimers' Hockey Challenge, raising money for charitable causes.
