Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Chris Govedaris
Left-winger Chris Govedaris was a part time player for the Hartford Whalers and Toronto Maple Leafs in the early 90s. After a fine amateur career, more was expected of him in the pros though he did end up enjoying a fair bit of success in Europe.

The Toronto native was a junior star on the local Marlboros of the OHL. He was taken 11th overall by Hartford in 1988 then returned to junior where he scored 79 points in 49 games. During the 1988-89 season Govedaris was a part of history as a member of the Marlies in their last season before moving to Hamilton.

Govedaris played a few games with the Whalers but competed for the most part with the AHL's Springfield Indians. In September 1993 he was signed as a free agent by the Toronto Maple Leafs. He played 12 games for the Leafs when they dominated the league during the first two months of the 1993-94 season but was soon relegated to the AHL's St. John's Maple Leafs. In 1994-95 he toiled in the IHL and AHL then helped Canada win the bronze medal at the World Championships. After recording 31 goals for the Minnesota Moose of the IHL in 1995-96, Govedaris joined Germany's Eisbaren Berlin club where he excelled for two years before retiring.
