Home Town of Hockey Goalie Grant Fuhr

03

Grant Fuhr was one of the National Hockey League’s best-ever goalies and a member of the outstanding Edmonton Oilers lineup of the 1980s.

Born in Spruce Grove in 1962, Grant received his first pair of skates from his adoptive parents at the young age of 4. His father encouraged him in sports and allowed him to make a makeshift arena in the basement of their home. Growing up he idolized NHL Player Glenn Hall and announced at the age of 7 he would be playing in the NHL.

Grant Fuhr would become one of the greatest goaltenders, playing on five Stanley Cup champion teams over twenty seasons (1981-2000) and earning induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003.

Now the Grant Fuhr Arena is home to the Spruce Grove Saints Junior A Hockey Club.
