Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ryan Bonni
Defenseman Ryan Bonni was the second selection of the Vancouver Canucks in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft on the strength of his Junior career spent primarily with the Saskatoon Blades.

Bonni turned pro with Vancouver's farm club in Syracuse for the 1999-00 season and found himself in the Canucks line up for a few games in that rookie campaign.

Injuries in Vancouver opened the door for Bonni to suit up for three games with the Canucks but the young blue liner was held off the score sheet.

Bonni moved the International Hockey League for the 2000-01 season, but was back in the AHL the next year when the IHL ceased operations. However, his time in the AHL was short lived. The Canucks felt other players needed the ice time on their top affiliate and sent Bonni down to the East Coast Hockey League's Columbia Inferno where he could get more playing time. Boucher, Brian

Brian Boucher became the first goaltender selected in the first round by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 1995. The Flyers struggled with goaltending woes throughout the 1990's but when Boucher showed he was ready with spectacular play for their American Hockey League farm club, Philadlephia inserted him into their line up as the backup to veteran John Vanbiesbrouck, and he immedietely showed signs of ending their goaltending drought.

As a rookie Boucher posted 20 wins and a 1.91 goals against average and won the starting job from Vanbiesbrouck just in time for the playoffs. Boucher's outstanding play during the post-season paced the Flyers to within a game of the Stanley Cup Finals before they finally fell to the New Jersey Devils. The Flyer brass, suitably impressed, traded Vanbiesbrouck to the New York Islanders in the off-season and handed the starting job to their new protégée. But the plan changed when Boucher stumbled out of the gate in 2000-01 and newly acquired Czech veteran Roman Cechmanek took the reigns and put together a fantastic first season that saw him earn a Vezina trophy nomination as the league's outstanding goaltender.

The 2001-02 season saw Boucher split his time with Cechmanek and improve upon his previous season's numbers, though he was still on the end of the bench when the playoffs began. However, when the Flyers struggled, Boucher was called upon in an effort to change their fortunes. Despite his solid play, he could not stop the Ottawa Senators from upsetting Philadelphia.
