John Grahame

June 16, 2004

FARMINGTON HILLS - The boyhood dreams of two former Central Collegiate Hockey Association players were realized last week when they celebrated a Stanley Cup championship with the Tampa Bay Lightning, who defeated Calgary 2-1 in the seventh game of the Finals.

Former Lake Superior State goaltender John Grahame and form Miami RedHawk Dan Boyle became the 21st and 22nd former CCHA players to have their names engraved on the Cup, which is the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America. Other former Lakers with their names on the Cup are Jim Dowd, Brian Rolston, Paul Boyer and Paul MacDonald.

Grahame appeared in one game (33:58) during the playoffs and posted a 3.53 goals-against average and .882 save percentage. For the season he was 18-9-1 with a 2.06 GAA and .913 save percentage.

Grahame, who currently resides in Redondo Beach, Cal., played for LSSU from 1994-97 and helped the Lakers win a CCHA regular-season title in 1996 and a CCHA Playoff title in 1995. His seven-year professional career includes stints with the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay.
