Tom Reid (born June 24, 1946 in Fort Erie, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 690 games in the National Hockey League. He played for the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota North Stars over an 11 year career.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Not known as a goal scorer, perhaps Reid's best known accomplishment as a player was scoring a rare penalty shot goal on October 14, 1971 against Ken Dryden of the Montreal Canadiens. It was the only penalty shot ever scored against Dryden and one of only 17 goals that Reid scored in his career. Reid retired in 1978 after contracting an unusual rash caused by his hockey equipment.
His NHL totals were (regular season) 690 games, 17 goals, and 113 assists; (playoffs) 42 games, 1 goal, and 13 assists.
Broadcasting[edit | edit source]
After retiring as a player, Reid spent 12 years as color analyst for the North Stars. After the team's move to Dallas, Reid continued as an analyst for NCAA hockey. He and Bob Kurtz have been part of the broadcast team for the Minnesota Wild since the team's inaugural season in 2000.
