Prince Edward Island has produced a handful of fine hockey players through the years. Gerard Gallant and Bob and Billy MacMillan came from PEI. Rick Vaive grew up there. AL MacADAM grew up calling Charlottetown home, and should be added to the list of talented NHLers from PEI. MacADAM broke in with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1973-74, winning a Stanley Cup after playing just five games. After NHL stops with the Golden Seals and Cleveland Barons, MacADAM joined the Minnesota North Stars beginning with the 1978-79 season. Throughout his career, MacADAM had always been a dependable forward with good offensive touch, but in 1979-80, AL MacADAM went on a tear and finished the season with 42 goals and 51 assists. His 93 points were not only a personal best, but put Al in 12th place in the regular season scoring. The NHL rewarded MacADAM's fine season and perseverance with the MASTERTON TROPHY in 1979-80.
