BIOGRAPHY

A solid defenseman who played with an edge, Dana Murzyn contributed a relentless physicality to the Calgary Flames Stanley Cup Championship team of 1989. 

 

Always known as a hard worker and a good teammate, the towering Murzyn puts his powerful mitts to work at Dreamworks, a residential and commercial custom millwork shop in Calgary.

 

As someone who lived the NHL dream, Dana has some advice for local minor hockey coaches.  

 

“Equalize the ice-time, because there’s way too much emphasis on separating kids based on talent.  You don’t learn unless you get the opportunity to try new things, so I wish more coaches would focus their efforts on teaching skating techniques and ensuring equal play.”


Big “Hank” hangs his hat in the Stampede City with his wife Kim and his sons Tyler and Clayton.   For over a decade he has given back to his community by Chairing the Flames Alumni Masters.
