After playing for Birmingham in the WHA as an underaged player, Michel Goulet was drafted 20th Overall by Quebec in the 1979 Draft.  Playing at Left Wing, Goulet would become an elite NHL sniper.  Goulet would have four consecutive 50 Goal Seasons (1982-83 to 1985-86) and would finish in the top ten in Goals six times.  His scoring touch was the backbone of vibrant Nordiques teams in the 1980s, and he was rewarded with three First Team All-Star and two Second Team All-Star Selections.

Goulet would be traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1990, and he would overall score 946 Points for the Nords.  He was chosen for the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998.
