Dec 3--Mike Ramsey

Mike Ramsey


Selected by Buffalo Sabres round 1 #11 overall 1979 NHL Entry Draft.

He turned down a lucrative offer from the Sabres to take a shot at the Olympics before turning pro. Looking back, he can only smile as he reflects upon the "Miracle On Ice" that transpired at Lake Placid. The American squad of upstarts shocked the hockey world by taking the gold medal away from the resident champion Soviets. For Ramsay, winning such a prize in such a politically charged environment was by far his greatest achievement in hockey. He had one of the most successful NHL careers of the 1980 U.S. Olympians.
He was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.
