For those asking, yes, Larmer's older brother IS former Blackhawk great Steve Larmer. I've always suspected it, but
never really researched it till now.
So with that said, you'd think that Jeff would be at least somewhat capable of what Steve could do. And really, his
rookie year showed some possibility, scoring 45 points and 21 goals, with the latter still a standing rookie record for the
Devils, tied with Kevin Todd's effort in 89-90.
But his career was riddled with injuries. He would miss part of his last season in juniors with a separated shoulder. And
as a Blackhawk, he suffered a broken jaw that pretty much ended his NHL career.
I made it a point to say NHL there, because he would finish that season with the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals, and
actually put up good numbers there. He would continue to play off-and-on between the minors and over in Europe,
finishing his playing career finally with the Admirals in 1994.
He had returned to Collingwood and started coaching minor hockey there, currently at the bantam level.
