Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Glen Featherstone
Hulking blue liner Glen Featherstone was drafted by the St. Louis Blues out of the Windsor Spitfire organization and he stepped into their line up during his first season as a professional.

Though he did play 37 games in the minor leagues that first year it's the 18 games he spent in St. Louis that he will remember about the 1988-89 campaign. He was able to assist on two goals during that time and joined the Blues for six playoff contests that spring. His second season he upped his games played total to 58 and he got his first two playoff points that spring while making 12 appearances. His third season was his first year as a full-time NHLer with no time spent in the minors, and he responded well by scoring five goals and 20 points in 68 games.

During the off-season Featherstone joined the Boston Bruins as a free agent, but his two year run with them was marred by injuries and the rugged defenseman was on the move again in the summer of 1994.

The Bruins sent him to the New York Rangers in exchange for Daniel Lacroix, but just six games into his Broadway debut Featherstone was packing his suitcase yet again. The Rangers sent him to Hartford as part of the package that landed the Blueshirts Pat Verbeek.

The tough guy spent one full year with the Whalers and managed 12 points in 68 games, which matched a career-high for games played. In 1996-97 Featherstone was 41 games into the campaign when Hartford shipped him to Calgary with Hnat Domenichelli and draft picks for veteran defenseman Steve Chiasson.

With the Flames Featherstone finished out the season playing 13 games for Calgary. They would ultimately prove to be the last games he played as an NHLer.

The 1997-98 season was spent entirely with the minors and then the veteran earned a contract from the Toronto Maple Leafs, which he inked in October of 1998, though he never managed to make their NHL roster.

The Leafs assigned him to the Chicago Wolves of the International Hockey League where he spent the next three seasons. In 2000 Featherstone scored three goals in eight points in the playoff en route to capturing the Turner Cup Championship.

After the 2000-01 campaign, the International Hockey League ceased operations and the Chicago Wolves joined the American Hockey League. The AHL's mandate was geared more toward player development and that meant that the Wolves roster would no longer have room for veteran players. Seeing the writing on the wall, Glenn Featherstone opted to hang up his skates rather then seek a new employer.
