Feb 4--Denis Cyr

L'un Denis

Selected by Calgary Flames round 1 #13 overall 1980 NHL Entry Draft.

Played on "Le Trois Denis " line with Denis Savard and Denis Tremblay for Montreal Junior Canadiens from 1977 to 1979. All three players shared the exact same birthdate and grew up in the same neighbourhood in Verdun. What are the odds on that?. He was first draft pick in Calgary Flames history after Atlanta franchise announced its intention to relocate to Calgary.
Cyr wasn't able to continue his scoring prowess with the Flames, and as a result he was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks in 1982 for Carey Wilson. The Hawks were hoping for Cyr to rekindle his chemistry with Denis Savard, who had already established himself as an elite NHLer by this time. However, Cyr still could not secure a permanent NHL position and after a couple of seasons moved on to the St. Louis Blues, and then retired after three seasons in their organization, most of which was spent playing for their minor league affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen of the International Hockey League.
