Legends of Team Canada: Todd Brost

Todd Brost is hardly the most recognizable player of Team Canada's 1992 Olympic team.

The 5'8" center went goalless in eight Olympic games while picking up four assists. The University of Michigan grad never went on to play anywhere close to the NHL. In fact, a couple of seasons later he was off the ice entirely.

So it should come as no surprise that the Olympics must rank as Brost's career highlight.

Sure, winning silver medals and playing on the world's grandest stage will do that to a guy. But he also will remember for getting engaged just prior to the Games, and for having his family - parents and fiance - travel to France to experience the Olympics with him.

Brost spent much of the 1993-94 season back with the Canadian National Team program but was cut before the puck dropped on the Norway Olympics.

After taking off his skates Brost became a minor league coach until about 2005. Then he put his economics and financial planning degree from Michigan to good use and became a financial planner in picturesque Corning, New York.
