Montreal, Quebec native Scott Sharples tended goal for four seasons at the University of Michigan then turned pro immediately after his fourth season. Sharples, who had been drafted by the Calgary Flames, reported to the Flames International Hockey League farm club in Salt Lake where he finished that campaign and spent all of the next season there.
Sharples, born on March 1st, 1968, also spent the 1991-92 with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles but did get a one game reprieve from the minor leagues. The Flames put Sharples in net for a single contest that season and he turned aside 36 shots en route to a 4-4 tie.
Sharples final season of professional hockey came the following year, in the 1992-93 campaign. He appeared in 25 games for the St. John's Maple Leafs of the American Hockey League then spent the rest of his year with the Brantford Smoke, a Colonial Hockey League franchise. Sharples retired from hockey in 1993.
