Mark Hunter’s run with the Flames was short, but it earned the tough winger a Stanley Cup Championship. Hunter was never known for his scoring touch. In his 3 years with the Flames he only scored 34 goals, but managed to rack up two 100+ PIM seasons. The 1988-89 season he set a career high by sitting in the box for 194 minutes.

Hunter left the Flames in 1990 and spent 2 seasons with the Whalers and then his final NHL season in 1992-93 with the Washington Capitals.

Upon retiring Hunter has had a lot of coaching opportunities. He has spent time as a coach with the Sarnia Sting and the St. John’s Maple Leafs. Hunter and his brother Dale were co-owners of the London Knights where Mark served as an assistant coach, GM and eventually head coach. In 2014 Hunter became the director of player personnel for the Toronto Maple Leafs and he remains in that position to this day.
