Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Randy Turnbull
Defenseman Randy Turnbull spent parts of four seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Portland Winter Hawks but during his final campaign, he also suited up for his only National Hockey League game.

Turnbull, a tough physical blue liner was the first selection of the Calgary Flames in the 1980 Entry Draft, though he was a the 97th overall selection. In 1981-82, the year he was completing his Junior career, the Flames came calling and summoned Turnbull for some big league action. Turnbull was unable to scored but he did amass two penalty minutes in his only appearance at that level.

For the next five years Turnbull toiled in the minor leagues trying to work his way back to the NHL. In 1987-88 Turnbull left the Flames farm club in Salt Lake and joined the International Hockey League's Flint Generals, but after just one game Turnbull gave up on the goal of returning to the NHL and retired.
