"Who Am I...?" #55

Hola amigos and amigas! No internet Monday on my end started the week off on a frustrating note, but in the name of silver linings: It’s a “Who Am I…?” Tuesday in the HIZZZZOUSSSSSSEEEEEE!!!

Here’s the deal: You’ve got five clues about a hockey relevant individual: could be a player, a coach, or a random “other” (e.g., celebrity, media type, athlete) with a connection to the game. It’s on you to not only identify said individual, but to back up your answer in the process! Specifically: how DOES that person fit with the clues? Grab bragging rights and school us “lesser thans” while you’re at it!!! Enter complete responses in the comments (person and how they fit) and we’ll see how long it takes to identify our mystery person! Here we go with #55!


1. I was not drafted and I was drafted.
2. I have played professionally on two continents.
3. I was a first team All-Rookie All Star.
4. I have been awarded for my positional play at the NHL level.
5. I have never been traded but am a three time free agent signing.


Release the hounds and name this random before anyone else does! Good luck!


Positive vibes to you all. Please put some care into you and yours this beautiful day and look out for one another where possible! Our impact on others with even the smallest of actions, is far greater than we tend to realize. My best your way…
