Biography: Allan MacInnis is a hockey legend. His long list of achievements throughout his junior and professional hockey career make him one of the best defenceman in the history of the National Hockey League.

In 1981 MacInnis was drafted to the Calgary Flames and a year later won the Memorial Cup with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. In 1983 he was rewarded the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the most outstanding defenseman in the Ontario Hockey League.

His NHL career started off strong and he participated in the NHL All-Star Game in 1985 at only 21 years old. (He went on to play in 14 more all-star games throughout his career.)

During the 1986 NHL Playoffs he led the league in assists and in 1989 won the most prized possession in hockey, the Stanley Cup, with the Calgary Flames. That year he was also awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy in recognition of his outstanding performance during the Playoffs -- 31 points in 22 games, making him the first NHL defenceman to record more points than anyone else. Additionally, MacInnis has represented Canada as part of the 1990 World Championships, 1991 Canada Cup Championships (in which Canada won gold), 1998 Winter Olympic Team, and the 2002 Gold Medal Olympic Team. (MacInnis was the first Nova Scotian to win gold at a Winter Olympics).

The St. Louis Blues retired MacInnis' jersey in 2006. The next year, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. MacInnis has also done a lot for his local community of Port Hood by contributing time and money to the renovations of the local rink.
