Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brad Turner
Defenseman Brad Turner took the collegiate route to the NHL, learning his trade at the University of Michigan where he played for four seasons starting in 1986. Following his time in Michigan, Turner singed his first professional contract when he joined the Capital District Islanders in 1990. He made enough of an impression in his rookie pro season to earn his first NHL contract, which he signed with the New York Islanders on June 4th, 1991.

Turner split the 1991-92 season between two American Hockey League clubs, the aforementioned Capital District team and the New Haven Nighthawks. However, the high point of that campaign came when the Islanders gave Turner a three game audition. Turner suited up for three contests with the New York Islanders, and though he didn't record a point he did manage to post a plus-1 rating.

The 1992-93 season was spent back in the AHL, but in '93-'94 Turner split his time between the AHL and the Canadian National Team where he scored 6 goals and 15 points in 30 games.

Turner's career took a different turn the following year when he elected to play in Finland. The next year he got another stamp on his passport when he played in Austria, and then the following season Turner was in England. After two seasons with the Manchester Storm, Turner had had enough and retired from the game.
