Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brantt Myhres
A product of the Northern Alberta hockey community, Brantt Myhres grew up playing minor hockey in the Edmonton area. At age 15 he had graduated to the Alberta Major Hockey League's Bonnyville Barons. In 60 games Myhres scored 102 points and 195 penalty minutes, it was good enough to catch the eye of Western Hockey League scouts.

In 1990, Brantt put on a Western Hockey League jersey for the first time, a league he played in for the next four seasons. Brantt laced them up for the Winter Hawks in Portland for a season and a half, before being traded to the Lethbridge Hurricanes. After two seasons in his home province with Lethbridge he concluded his career with the Spokane Chiefs. Following the 1992 season, Myhres was selected 97th overall in the NHL Entry Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After starting the 1995 season with Atlanta of the International Hockey League, Myhres got the call to the parent club in Tampa and finished the season with the Lightning scoring two goals.

Over the next seven seasons, Brantt was up and down between the International Hockey League, the American Hockey League and the National Hockey League. His travels have taken him to San Jose, Philadelphia, Nashville, Washington, and Boston in the NHL as numerous cities in the minor leagues.

One of hockey's premier superstitious players, Brantt has many same day routines including eating the same meal on game day.

In the summer of 2005, Myhres was acquired by the Calgary Flames.
