Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brad Church
In the midst of his successful junior career with the Prince Albert Raiders, Brad Church, born in Dauphin, Manitoba on November 14th, 1976, was a 1st round draft pick of the Washington Capitals in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.

When his junior career ended Church made the leap to minor pro in 1996-97 and suited up for the AHL's Portland Pirates, playing 50 games and scoring 12 points. The following year Church again spent the majority of his time in the AHL, but made it up to the NHL for two games with the Capitals.

Unable to crack the scoresheet in Washington, Church's career resumed in the minors the next couple of seasons. On February 3rd, 1999 the Capitals traded Church to the Edmonton Oilers for winger Barrie Moore, but the change of scenery didn't change Church's luck and he did not get back up the NHL level with Edmonton.

Church's career continued at the minor pro level splitting his time between the AHL and the ECHL. Despite a new NHL affiliation, Church played most of his games in Portland with the Pirates before splitting his 2002-03 season with the AHL's Cleveland Barons and the ECHL's Richmond Renegades.
