Robert George "Rob" Ramage (born January 11, 1959) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played 15 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Toronto Maple Leafs, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers. He also played one season in the World Hockey Association (WHA) for the Birmingham Bulls.

Playing career

Ramage was selected first overall by the Colorado Rockies in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. He spent his junior career with the London Knights, who have since retired his number 5, and also played a season in the WHA for the Birmingham Bulls.

In his rookie season with Colorado, Ramage became a part of history in a rather embarrassing way. While the Rockies were playing the New York Islanders, the Rockies' goaltender left the ice for an extra skater after a delayed penalty was called on the Islanders. The puck deflected off the chest protector of Islanders goalie Billy Smith into the corner. Ramage picked up the puck and accidentally made a blind pass from the corner boards in the opposing zone to the blue line. Nobody was there to receive the pass, and so the puck sailed all the way down the length of the ice and into the Colorado net. Smith had been the last Islander to touch the puck, and so he became the first NHL goalie ever to be credited with a goal.

Ramage's name is engraved twice on the Stanley Cup, as a member of the 1989 Calgary Flames and the 1993 Montreal Canadiens. He also played in four NHL All-Star Games (1981, 1984, 1986, 1988).

Off-ice activities

He attended Byron Northview Public School and Saunders Secondary Schoolmarker in London, Ontariomarker. Rob married his high school sweetheart Dawn Van Diepen in 1982. They have three children.

Up until January 23, 2009 Ramage was a broker at the Clayton, Missouri branch of Wachovia Securities (formerly A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc. brokerage firm), soon to be acquired by Wells Fargo. As a result of his conviction for impaired driving (see below), his US permanent residency was terminated, ending his employment.

Criminal history

On December 15, 2003, Ramage was driving his Chrysler Intrepid on a Canadian freeway with former Chicago Black Hawk captain Keith Magnuson in the passenger seat when the car swerved into the oncoming lane and struck an oncoming vehicle. Ramage suffered a dislocated hip, Magnuson died and the other driver was injured. Ramage was criminally charged with five charges, including impaired driving causing death. He pleaded not guilty. On October 10, 2007, following a Canadian jury trial, he was found guilty on all five counts after 4½ hours of jury deliberation and on January 17, 2008 he was sentenced to four years in prison. His lawyer, Brian Greenspan, stated an intention to appeal the conviction.

On December 3, 2007, in a Missouri civil suit, Ramage and the National Car Rental Company of Canada were found liable in the death of Magnuson and Magnuson's family was awarded damages in the amount of $9.5 million.
