Jamie Storr (born December 28, 1975) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey goaltender.

Playing career[edit]

Storr was the first goalie selected in the 1991 OHL Entry Draft and played major junior with the Owen Sound Platers and the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). In the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, Storr was drafted 7th overall by the Los Angeles Kings. He remained in the OHL for one more season before turning pro in 1994–95.

Storr spent the majority of his first three seasons in the Kings' minor league system with the Phoenix Roadrunners and Long Beach Ice Dogs of the International Hockey League (IHL). In his rookie season, he was given the opportunity to live with teammate Wayne Gretzky and his family in Beverly Hills, CA. Storr was, in fact, named to the NHL All-Rookie Team twice, in 1997–98 and 1998–99. Although he first appeared with the Kings in 1994–95, Storr did not play the minimum amount of games in one season (25) to not be considered a rookie until after 1998–99, therefore making him eligible for the honour multiple times.[1] His All-Rookie Team appearance in 1997-98 made him the only NHL player to be named to the All-Rookie Team while playing in fewer than 20 games in that season.

Storr remained with the Kings until the 2003–04 season, when he joined the Carolina Hurricanes.[2] He was not, however, able to stick with the club and played in the minor leagues for the next three seasons.[3] In 2006, Storr signed with the German DEG Metro Stars and went overseas to play in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).[4] Storr retired after three years with DEG Metro Stars on 13 May 2009.[5] In 2010 it was announced that Storr would be an emergency backup with DEG Metro Stars; however, he would stay in North America unless needed.[6] He finally didn't have to play.

International play[edit]

Storr represented Team Canada extensively during his junior career, winning gold at the U-17, U-18 and U-20 levels. At the 1994 and 1995 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic and Sweden, Storr won back-to-back gold medals with Canada, going undefeated in tournament play.

Storr was one of 2 players to ever win 5 gold medals representing Team Canada before he played his first NHL game. U-17(91), U-18(92), two world Juniors (94) and (95) as well as world championship (94). The only other player to do so was Paul Kariya.

In 1994, he won the World Junior Championships Best Goaltender award and was also named to Team Canada's senior team for the World Championships, where he captured another gold medal, despite not appearing in a game.
