Infamously known to be a fearless and talented left-winger for the NHL, Shayne Corson spent 19 years forging his extensive hockey résumé. Before he turned pro with the Montréal Canadiens in 1986, Corson represented his country twice at the World Junior Championships with the OHL’s Hamilton Steelhawks. The Barrie native was gritty. Whether it was his 1156 regular season game participation, scoring 273 goals, adding 420 assists along with 2357 penalty minutes, Corson established himself as a powerhouse forward remaining with the Canadiens for eight seasons.
Corson was next traded to the Edmonton Oilers spending three seasons on their roster before a single season with the St. Louis Blues. In his 1996 – 1997 season, Corson was back with the Canadiens. He spent four seasons with the original team that drafted him representing his country yet again on the 1998 Olympic stage in Nagano. This lead Corson to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2000. He remained with the Leafs for the next three years, achieving a spot to play with the Dallas Stars in his last season in 2004. Since retiring, Corson has not stopped trailblazing. Off the ice, he has dedicated his voice to raise awareness on mental health and ulcerative colitis — a disease he suffered from since 15.
