Biography

He played 21 seasons for the Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs, Florida Panthers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Tampa Bay Lightning.

He was the first round pick of the Calgary Flames, 12th overall in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, where he played the first ten seasons of his NHL career, winning the Stanley Cup in 1989.

A serious injury forced Roberts to miss most of the 1994–95 and half of the 1995–96 season. He returned late that year and – after scoring 42 points in 35 games – was awarded the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey.

Roberts played over 1,200 NHL games in his career, recording 438 goals and 910 points.
