His stellar play continued as Team USA beat Finland in the next game to capture gold. During the Olympic tournament, Craig allowed only 15 goals en route to an undefeated 6-0-1 record and was the top goaltender posting an astounding 2.14 goals-against average.

After the Olympics, Craig played briefly in the NH. He appeared in games with the Atlanta Flames, the Boston Bruins, and the Minnesota North Stars, compiling a 3.69 goals-against average, before leaving professional hockey. He was later inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame.

Now a successful businessman and consultant, Craig has worked for Valassis Communications, a marketing services firm, where he earned many awards. Currently, he is Vice President for a full-service marketing company headquartered in Norton, MA.
