MARK HUNTER, BROTHER OF DALE AND DAVE, KEPT THE FAMILY REPUTATION ALIVE, EQUALLY AMASSING PENALTIES AND GOALS IN FOUR SEASONS IN MONTREAL.

Considered the most gifted of the three Hunter brothers, Mark Hunter was selected seventh overall by the Canadiens in the first round of the 1981 entry draft. Coached by his father right up to Junior B, he played major junior with the Brantford Alexanders, posting a total of 169 points over two seasons.

The right winger from Petrolia, Ontario, earned a spot in the Montreal lineup on his first try. He lit the lamp 18 times as a rookie, living up to the rugged Hunter family name established by his brothers Dave and Dale with 143 penalty minutes.

Hunter played four seasons with Montreal, enjoying his best season in 1984-85 with 21 goals and 33 points. He missed most of two seasons, 1982-83 and 1983-84, because of a knee injury.

He was traded to the St. Louis Blues along with Michael Dark in the summer of 1985 in a deal that involved a number of draft choices.

In 196 games with the Canadiens, Hunter had 53 goals, 35 assists, and 381 penalty minutes.

He enjoyed the best years of his career in St. Louis, including four straight 60-point seasons from 1985 to 1988 and an All-Star Game appearance in 1986. Subsequently traded to Calgary, he won a Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989 and went on to play with the Hartford Whalers and the Washington Capitals.

Hunter went on to coach the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting and the St. John’s Maple Leafs of the AHL.

He has been a co-owner of the OHL’s London Knights since 2000, along with his brother Dale, and is also the team’s vice president and general manager.
