Ryan Getzlaf: Retired NHL
Getzlaf was born May 10, 1985, in Regina, Saskatchewan. He is the son of Steve and Susan Getzlaf. He attended Robert Usher Collegiate in Regina.
Getzlaf played his entire NHL career with the Anaheim Ducks and is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer. A first-round selection, 19th overall, at the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, he played in three NHL All-Star Games and was a member of the Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup championship team. A playmaker and power forward, Getzlaf is the Ducks’ all-time leader in games played, assists, and points and the all-time playoff leader in goals, assists and points. He led the Ducks in assists twelve times, including a franchise record of 66 in 2008–09, and in points eight times.
As a junior, Getzlaf played four seasons with the Calgary Hitmen and was twice named to a Western Hockey League (WHL) all-star team. Internationally, he has represented Canada on numerous occasions. Getzlaf was a member of the 2005 World Junior Championship squad considered the greatest in Canadian history, and won a silver medal at the 2008 IIHF World Championship. A two-time Olympian, Getzlaf played with Canadian teams that won gold medals at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Games.
Chris Getzlaf: Retired CFL
Getzlaf was born Jan 9th, 1983, in Regina, Saskatchewan. He is the eldest son of Steve and Susan Getzlaf and older brother to Ryan. He attended Robert Usher Collegiate in Regina.
Getzlaf was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders with Corey Holmes in exchange for Jason Armstead on August 19, 2007. While he was on the practice roster during the Roughriders’ 2007 Grey Cup victory, he still shared in the win, meaning that both he and his brother, Ryan, ended up 2007 champions with their respective teams.
Getzlaf started the 2008 season on the practice roster, but with a rash of injuries at the receiver position, he was pressed into action, making his Riders debut on Oct 3, 2008. In this game against the Calgary Stampeders, he recorded his first career CFL catch and touchdown, finishing the game with five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown. He dressed for the final five games of the season, finishing with 15 catches for 247 yards and two touchdowns. He also contributed one catch for 13 yards in the Roughriders’ loss to the BC Lions in the 2008 West Semi-Final.
