Edward (Ed) 'Eddie the Eagle' Belfour Edward (Ed) 'Eddie the Eagle' Belfour


BORN: Carman, Manitoba, Canada, April 21, 1965.
HEIGHT: 5'11"
WEIGHT: 182 pounds.
CATCHES: Left.
COLLEGE: University of North Dakota

STYLE: Butterfly / standup hybrid.
STRENGTHS: Technically strong. Extremely quick, great desire. Aggressive and very acrobatic. Very stubborn; has an undeniable belief in himself. Trememdous work ethic, and maintains his focus, despite rarely seeing a large number of shots. Maintains good control of rebounds and takes away the low part of the net; in fact, Belfour's nearly impossible to beat low. Good puckhandler and skater - passing skills are top-notch, but he shows restraint in shooting the puck down the ice.
WEAKNESSES: Vulnerable to shots at the top corners. Known for his volatile temper, and there's still the sense that he can be rattled easily and knocked off his game. Ed once had a reputation for failing in big games, but his recent play has demonstrated differently.
