BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: Courtnall Family
Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Geoff and Russ Courtnall both logged over 1,000 career National Hockey League (NHL) games.  Geoff scored 799 points in his career, only slightly edging out his brother, who finished with 744 points.  Geoff also collected more career penalty minutes that his younger brother, spending over 15 hours longer in the penalty box, with a career 1,465 penalty minutes. 

Both brothers spent time with the Victoria Cougars of the Western Hockey League (WHL), playing together for a season in 1982-1983.  Geoff was passed over in the NHL draft, Russ however, was taken seventh overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1983. 

The Courtnalls played together twice more, once at the World Championship in 1991, where Canada claimed a silver medal, and once briefly in Vancouver, when the Canucks acquired Russ late in the 1994-1995 season. 

Geoff has a Stanley Cup to his name, winning with the Oilers in 1988, andRuss has a gold medal, winning the Canada Cup in 1991.

Geoff and Russ Courtnall were inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.
