Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Randy Osburn
Left-winger Randy Osburn played 27 NHL games in the early 70s. He was a fine goal scorer who found the net often in junior and the minors during his career.

The native of Collingwood, Ontario played junior with the Hamilton Red Wings and London Knights. After scoring 100 points for London in 1971-72 he was chosen 27th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Amateur Draft. The young forward split the 1972-73 season between the Tulsa Oilers of the CHL and the struggling Maple Leafs.

Osburn was relegated to the minors after Toronto rebuilt its roster prior to the 1973-74 season. He went on to lead the CHL with 37 goals while skating for the Oklahoma City Blazers. Osburn and defenceman Dave Fortier were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in May, 1974 for Bill "Cowboy" Flett. He only played one game for the powerful Flyers and remained in the minors until retiring in 1978. During his last 3 1/2 years as a pro Osburn was a consistent goal scorer for the Philadelphia Firebirds of the North American League and the AHL.
