Goaltender Marc D'Amour, born in Sudbury, Ontario on May 29th 1961 played his Junior career with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds after which he signed a free agent contract with the Calgary Flames in 1982. D'Amour payed his dues in the Flames minor league system. When the Flames traded veteran Don Edwards to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1985 an job was created in Calgary and D'Amour was given his chance.
D'Amour split the back up duties behind veteran Rejean Lemelin with fellow rookie Mike Vernon but posted only two victories in his fifteen appearances and the full-time NHL job was ultimately won by Vernon. D'Amour returned to the minors and played a game for the Canadian National Team but he never returned to the NHL with the Flames.
D'Amour's next opportunity came after he signed a free agent deal with the Philadelphia Flyers on September 30th 1988. D'Amour was a minute shy of playing a period for the Flyers during the 1988-89 season and did not surrender a goal. D'Amour spent the rest of that campaign and all of the next three
in the Flyers minor league system then retired from hockey in 1992.
