Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jeff Greenlaw
Following a great deal of hype as an amateur, left-winger Jeff Greenlaw's impact in the NHL was minimal. He ended up being a solid role player in the AHL and IHL.

The Toronto native caused a stir as a "can't miss star" with the junior B St. Catharines Falcons before joining the Canadian national team in 1985-86. He represented Canada at the World Junior Championships that year and was selected 19th overall by the Washington Capitals at the 1986 Entry Draft.

During his rookie NHL season in 1986-87, the big winger played 22 games then battled injuries. Over the next six seasons he was occasionally recalled to the Caps but was predominantly visible in the AHL a grinder. In July, 1993 Greenlaw was signed as a free agent by the expansion Florida Panthers but was only used in four games. He became a regular on the IHL's Cincinnati Cyclones for several years where he continued to grind it out in the corners and score a few goals. In 1999 the former teenage prospect signed on with the Austin Ice Bats of the Western Pro League.
