BIO

Player bios courtesy of the Hockey Hall of Fame

Defenceman Ken Sabourin played 74 games for the Calgary Flames and Washington Capitals in the 80s and 90s. He was a rugged individual who used his 6'3" frame effectively to battle enemy forwards.

The native of Scarborough, Ontario was taken 33rd overall by Calgary in 1984 while he was in the midst of a solid four year tenure with the Soo Greyhounds of the OHL. He began his pro career with two decent seasons with the AHL's Moncton Golden Flames and was recalled by the mighty Flames in 1988-89. That year he played six regular season contests and one playoff match as the club won its first Stanley Cup.

After struggling to gain a full time spot with the powerful Flames, Sabourin was sent to the Washington Capitals for Paul Fenton in January, 1991. He was used a bit more by his new team over the next two seasons then settled into a respectable minor pro career.
