89 Champs: Where Are They Now: Ric Nattress

Ric Nattress spent 5 years with the Flames and was involved in one of the worst trades in Flames history.

Ric Nattress

Ric Nattress arrived in Calgary just in time to get himself a Stanley Cup. The Hamilton Ontario product spent the prior two seasons in St. Louis before making the jump to the Flames. Five of the 12 seasons he spent in the NHL were with the Flames and that 5 year stop was the longest he spent on any NHL roster.

During the 88-89 regular season he only saw the ice in 39 games, but played in 19 games during the playoffs, registering 3 points. Nattress was traded during the 1991-92 season in the infamous Doug Gilmour trade that sent Ric, Doug and 3 other Flames to the Maple Leafs. Nattress would finish that season in Toronto and play only 1 more season, with the Flyers, before retiring at the age of 30.

The last thing Ric Nattress was known to be doing was hosting a Toronto Maple Leafs post game show for Sportsnet 590 which he is no longer associated with.
