1986-87 Hockey Season Roster
- Slick Oilers: High-scoring Edmonton wins its third Cup in four years
- Puck Stops Here: Rookie Ron Hextall wins Vezina, Conn Smythe awards
- Supreme Leader: Gretzky’s 62 goals, 183 points dominate high-scoring NHL
After their dynasty was interrupted by Montreal’s Stanley Cup victory last year, Edmonton came back with a vengeance: A league-best 106 points and 372 goals, with three of the league’s top scorers, led by The Great One, Wayne Gretzky (62-121-183 – an astonishing 75 points more than anyone else). The Oilers then forged a 12-1 record in the first three rounds of the playoffs. In the Finals, Edmonton led Philadelphia – the NHL’s only other 100-point team – two games to none, then three games to one. But rookie goalie Ron Hextall, who led the NHL with 37 wins and a .902 save percentage, then snuffed the explosive Oilers in the next two games, and Philly took a 1-0 lead into the third period of Game 7 at Edmonton before the Oilers rallied to win. His performance earned Hextall the rare Conn Smythe Trophy awarded to a player from the losing team.
The high-scoring 1986-87 season featured 17 40-goal scorers (five topped 50) and seven 100-points men. Only Hextall reached a 90 percent save percentage among regular netminders.
Every player on all 21 teams is included on this roster, which is rich in Hall of Fame players at their best – nearly three dozen in all, including almost all of the league’s top point scorers. That includes Calder Trophy winner Luc Robitaille, Norris Trophy winner Ray Bourque and Lady Byng Trophy winner Joe Mullen.
