the Stanley Cup. The Oak
Park native was a member of
the New York Rangers when they won
the coveted trophy in 1994, ending a
Hartman spent 10
years in the National
Hockey League, play-
ing in 397 regular-
season and 21 playoff
games. Known more
for his physical play
than scoring ability,
the left wing amassed
43 goals, 35 assists
and 1,388 penalty minutes while play-
ing for the Buffalo Sabres, Winnipeg
Jets, Tampa Bay Lightning and Rangers
The Sabres brought him into the
NHL, selecting him in the seventh
round of the 1986 Entry Draft. During
and after his NHL days, Hartman rep-
resented the U.S. in the World Junior
Championships in 1987 and the World
Championships in 1999.
It was a nice career for someone with
a very modest goal.
"All I wanted to do was play one game
in the NHL," Hartman said. "Everything
else was a bonus."
A 1995 inductee into the Michigan
Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, Hartman
will be honored again April 29 when
he's inducted into the National Jewish
Sports Hall of Fame at the Suffolk
Jewish Community Center in Commack,
Now 45 and living in Charlotte, N.C.,
Hartman is a life coach for companies.
He's also the author of a book, 100
Ways To Become Your Personal Best, and
proud father of Gabrielle, 18, and Chase,
"My kids are my pride and joy, and
I'm so happy that they'll be there with
me when I'm inducted into the Hall of
Fame," he said.
Hartman said he was ready to quit
hockey when he was 18 and devastated
after not being selected in the NHL
draft. He credits Detroit Red Wings
senior vice president Jimmy Devellano
with keeping his dream alive.
"We met for lunch, and Jimmy gave
me a road map and game plan for me
to follow for my life Hartman said. "He
woke me up. I can't thank him enough."
Hartman grew up in Oak Park and
attended Berkley High School as a
freshman and West Bloomfield High
School as a sophomore before heading
to Canada to play junior hockey.
Former University of Michigan
women's soccer coach and U.S. women's
national soccer team member Debbie
Belkin-Rademacher also is a member of
the nine-person National Jewish Sports
Hall of Fame induction class. She'll be
profiled in a later sports column.
