Playing career

The speedy Geoff Courtnall was signed by the Boston Bruins of the NHL as an undrafted free agent on 6 July 1983. He played for the Bruins from the 1983-84 NHL season to 8 March 1988 when he was traded along with Bill Ranford to the Edmonton Oilers for Andy Moog. While in Edmonton He helped the Oilers win the 1988 Stanley Cup Championship. Barely four months later, the Oilers traded Courtnall to the Washington Capitals for Greg C. Adams, who was also from Duncan, British Columbia. After two seasons in Washington, he was traded to the St. Louis Blues for Mike Lalor and Peter Zezel.

Courtnall's first nine seasons were spent bouncing between five NHL clubs and two AHL clubs, the Hershey Bears and Moncton Golden Flames.

After less than a season in St. Louis he was sent at the trading deadline to the Vancouver Canucks in a blockbuster trade. Going to Vancouver were Robert Dirk, Sergio Momesso, Cliff Ronning, and future considerations. Going to St. Louis were Garth Butcher and Dan Quinn. This trade marked a major turning point for the Canucks as these players were among the core players that would lead the Canucks to their Stanley Cup run in 1994. Courtnall would only play one more season in Vancouver after the Cup run of '94 as he went back to the St. Louis Blues for the start of the 1995-96 season. He scored a lot of goals for the Blues but he suffered several concussions. After sitting out the last half of the 1998-1999 season with a concussion he returned to the lineup the next season. But only a few games in he went down again with a concussion, this time for the last time. Lingering effects of Post Concussion Syndrome forced Courtnall to retire after the 1999-2000 season.
