Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jeff Larmer
Left winger Jeff Larmer played two full NHL seasons and parts of three others in the 1980s. Although his NHL career was short-lived, he was a top scorer in junior, the minors, and overseas. He was also the younger brother of Chicago Blackhawks star, Steve Larmer.

Born in Peterborough, Ontario, Larmer excelled with the local Bees in the OJHL before enjoying three excellent years with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. He was chosen 129th overall by the Colorado Rockies in 1981 and recorded consecutive 50-goal seasons his last two years of junior. In 1981-82, he led all playoff scorers with 21 goals in 15 games to help Kitchener win the Memorial Cup. He was named to the tournament all-star team and voted on to the OHL second all-star squad.

The tricky forward dressed for eight games with the Rockies in 1981-82 and stayed with the franchise when it relocated to New Jersey. He scored 21 goals during his first full NHL season playing with Aaron Broten and Paul Gagne. The next year, he started with the Devils but was reunited with his brother in Chicago after he was traded for Tim Higgins. He scored 22 points in 36 games for the Hawks but was unable to keep his place in the lineup.

Larmer spent two years as a reliable scorer with the Milwaukee Admirals of the IHL then headed to Britain to play a season with the Solihull Barons. He sat out the 1990-91 season then returned to play two and a half years in Milwaukee before retiring for good during the 1993-94 season.
