Bryan Charles Fogarty (born June 11, 1969 in Montreal, Quebec) grew up in Brantford, Ontario. He was an OHL superstar in the late 1980's.
He was chosen 1st overall in the 1985 OHL draft by the Kingston Canadians before future NHLers, Adam Graves (6th), Bryan Marchment (12th) and Brendan Shanahan (13th).
In 1989, after breaking Bobby Orr's 23 year old record (38 goals by a defenseman) and smashing Cam Plante's record(140 points by defenseman) with 155 points in 60 games(Niagara Falls Thunder 1988-1989), he was named Canadian Major Junior Hockey Player of the Year. Both records still stand. As does his single game record of 8 assists accomplished twice (1988-1989).
Although he spent most of his 9 year pro hockey career in the minors, it should be noted Bryan was chosen 9th overall in the 1987 NHL draft by the Quebec Nordiques, six spots before Joe Sakic.
He maintains the distinction of recording the last natural Hat Trick as a defenseman (Quebec Nordiques) on December 1, 1990 against the Buffalo Sabres, in a 4-2 home game win. He was the 1st Nordiques defenseman to record a Hat Trick.
Bryan passed away March 6, 2002. He was 32 years old.
