Humble Beginnings

Gord Lane

Did you know...?

Gord Lane opened the 1979-80 season as a member of the Washington Capitals and ended it as a member of the Stanley Cup champion New York Islanders. Lane stayed on the Island long enough to participate in each of New York’s four consecutive Cup championship teams, a streak that ran through 1983. Lane was the first former Capital ever to have his name etched onto the Cup.
