Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Alfie Turcotte
Alfie Turcotte spent parts of seven years in the NHL during the 1980s and '90s. The offensive forward never made a significant impact in the big leagues but was a force in junior, the minors, and Europe.

Born in Gary, Indiana, Turcotte starred with Detroit Compuware of the NAHL before playing with the WHL's Nanaimo Islanders and Portland Winter Hawks. After helping Portland win the Memorial Cup in 1983 and being named tournament MVP, he was chosen 17th overall by the Montreal Canadiens. The gifted forward returned to junior in 1983-84 and represented the U.S. at the World Junior Championships.

Turcotte spent parts of three years with Montreal and saw significant time on the power play. His overall play was inconsistent and kept him from establishing himself as a big league regular. He represented the U.S. at the 1986 World Championships and toiled briefly with the Winnipeg Jets and Washington Capitals. His best year during this period was 1987-88 when he made the AHL second all-star team after scoring 102 points while playing for three different clubs.

In 1991-92, Turcotte left North America for the VSV Villach club of Austria. He also played in Switzerland and Germany and led the Austrian league in scoring twice. He returned to North America in 1998-99 to play for the WPHL's Arkansas Glaciercats.
