2006 Wayne Colley 512


From 1979-1990, Wayne tended goal for the famed Brooklin Redmen.

In the 1985 Mann Cup final, Wayne emerged as an elite goaltender winning a Mann Cup after being down 3 games to none over the New Westminster Salmonbellies. That year he awarded the Mike Kelly Award as the Mann Cup MVP. During the next 5 seasons, Colley and the Brooklin Redmen advanced to the Mann Cup finals winning the Mann Cup in 1987, 1988 and 1990. Wayne and the Brooklin Redmen won the Harry Lumley Trophy (fewest goals against) in 1980, 81, 83, 1987-1990. He also holds the record for most assists as a goaltender in Mann Cup competition.

Wayne Colley is truly one of the best goaltenders of all time and after his playing career was over, his interests turned to coaching and his records in this area are almost as remarkable as his playing stats. Wayne was inducted into the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1999 and into the Whitby Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
