Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Crowley
Born on the fourth of July, 1975 in Bloomington, Minnesota defenseman Mike Crowley played for his home state University of Minnesota for three years. While playing there, Crowley also represented the United States at the World Junior Championships and then a World Championships in 1996. Though drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers, Crowley was traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim before his collegiate career ended.

In 1997 Crowley turned pro with the Ducks organization. Crowley was called up to Anaheim for 8 games and responded with four points in his brief audition. The following seasons Crowley played 20 games but couldn't keep up his impressive scoring of the previous year, with just 2 goals and 3 assists in that time. The entire 1999-2000 season was spent in the minors with the Long Beach Ice Dogs, but the 2000-01 campaign saw Crowley return to Anaheim In 39 contests for the Ducks scored a goal and added 10 assists.

His contract expired after the season making Crowley a free agent and when an offer came the Minnesota Wild, Crowley jumped at the opportunity to play near home. Crowley unfortunately suffered an injury in training camp that indefinitely postponed his home state NHL debut.
