Patrick Burrows (Athlete)

Having played in 224 senior matches for Canada, Patrick Burrows’ career playing field hockey is one of the most accomplished in the history of the sport in Canada.

His career spanned nearly twenty years, with two tours of duty at the senior level from 1980 to 1990 and then again from 1994 to 1998.

Burrows and his teammates competed in two Olympic Games, three World Cups and three Pan American Games.

As one of the younger players on the team, Burrows went on a development tour in 1980, before making a decision that would help his career immensely.

Among his career highlights, Burrows captured two Pan American gold medals, first in 1983 in Caracas and second in 1987 in Indianapolis. He took a leave from the game in 1990.

The 1998 World Cup performance, where Canada finished 8th, stands out as one of Canada’s better finishes at a major games

Congratulations to Patrick Burrows on being inducted into the Field Hockey Canada Hall of Fame.
