In a draft year that saw an abundance of future stars like Jaromir Jagr, Martin Brodeur, Owen Nolan, Keith Tkachuk, and Peter Bondra, Geoff Sanderson found himself in a select group as the Hartford Whalers second choice, 36th overall, in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.

After spending his junior career with the WHL's Swift Current Broncos, where he led the team in several offensive categories, he was off to Hartford to pursue his dream of playing in the NHL.

After playing in 64 games in his first full season for the club in 1991-92, he registered career highs in goals (46), assists (43), and points (89) in 1992-93. He also played for Team Canada in the World Championships. The next year saw him have another great season for the Whalers, capped off with a World Championship victory for Canada.

Sanderson spent his first six NHL seasons with Hartford and played half a season with the franchise when they moved to Carolina in 1997.  

Geoff acknowledges that he played his best hockey as a member of the Hartford Whalers.
