A two-time Stanley Cup champion, Adam Graves’ NHL Career spanned over 1100 games in 17 seasons. Known as a tremendous leader and reliable two way forward by his teammates and opponents, Graves amassed eight seasons of 20 goals or more, including a 52 goal campaign during the New York Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup run.
Graves is a local hockey legend, as many remember his three amazing seasons with the Windsor Spitfires from 1985 to 1988. His #9 has been retired by both the Spitfires, and the New York Rangers.
