Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Steve Passmore
Steve Passmore was born January 29, 1973 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The 10th choice, 196th overall selection of the Quebec Nordiques in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, Passmore is a graduate of the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association and of the Western Hockey League.

The Thunder Bay, Ontario native spent four years in the Western Hockey League with stops in Tri-City, Victoria and Kamloops where he was a WHL First Team All-Star in 1993 and again in 1994 backstopping the Blazers to the 1994 Memorial Cup championship.

Towards the end of the 1993-94 season, the Nordiques traded Passmore to the Edmonton Oilers and assigned him to their American Hockey League affiliate in Cape Breton for the 1994-95 season. Passmore missed the majority of the 1995-96 season while being treated for a rare disorder, before returning to the ice with the Hamilton Bulldogs after the Cape Breton franchise relocated.

After missing the majority of the 1995-96 season, Passmore rejoined the Bulldgogs in 1996-97 leading them to the 1997 Calder Cup championship only to come up short against the Hershey Bears and capturing the Fred T. Hunt Memorial Award which is awarded to the player who best exemplifies sportsmanship, determination, and dedication to hockey.

Even though he spent the majority of the season in Hamilton, Passmore played in two games with the East Coast Hockey League's Raleigh Ice Caps before splitting his 1997-98 season with the Bulldogs and the International Hockey League's San Antonio Dragons.

In 1998-99 Passmore returned to the Bulldogs and played in his first NHL game with the Oilers. Passmore went on to play in six games with the Oilers before signing as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks during the off-season.

During the 99-2000 Passmore played in a career high 24 games with the Blackhawks while playing in handful of games with the IHL's Cleveland Lumberjacks before splitting his 2000-01 season with the IHL's Chicago Wolves, the AHL's Lowell Lock Monsters and the NHL's LA Kings and Chicago Blackhawks.

Upon his arrival with Chicago, Passmore split his time between the parent club and their AHL affiliate in Norfolk before having his rights acquired by the Phoenix Coyotes in the summer of 2005 following a season spent in Germany.
