Kelly Hrudey

Kelly Hrudey is currently on his 14th season as an analyst with CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. The Gemini Award-winning analyst moved from the studio to the broadcast booth in 2012-2013 season for the Saturday night Prime West game each week. Hrudey also joins host Scott Oake for the post-game show, After Hours.

A popular and knowledgeable hockey commentator, Hrudey became a full-time hockey analyst with CBC's Hockey Night in Canada during the 1998-99 NHL season, after providing stellar commentary during the previous four playoff seasons with host MacLean. In 2007, Hrudey was recognized for his work on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada with his first Gemini Award in the Best Studio Analyst category.

In February 2006, Hrudey worked as an analyst for CBC's broadcast of TORINO 2006 - THE OLYMPIC GAMES, marking his second Olympic broadcast experience.
Hrudey strapped on the pads with the Calgary Flames in the Fall of 2001 for Basic Training - a feature on the Flames training camp that aired as part of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada pre-game show during the first five weeks of the regular season. It provided fans with a rare glimpse of what players, rookies and veterans alike experience en route to hopefully making an NHL squad.

During his 15-year NHL career as a goalie with the New York Islanders, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks, the former Medicine Hat Tiger compiled a record of 271-265-88, with a goals against average of 3.43 and 16 shutouts.

Hrudey resides in Calgary with his wife and three daughters.
Kelly supports and contributes to many worthwhile charities and causes. This tribute will take the shape of a 5 year $1,000 annual bursary and will be donated to a charity or organization of Kelly’s choice.
