Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- David Harlock
David Harlock had a distinguished amateur career before he entered the NHL during the 1995-96 season. He played college hockey at the University of Michigan and became only the second player in the Wolverines history to captain his squad for three seasons.

While in college, he also played on Canada's gold-medal winning World Junior team in 1991. He was on the 1994 Canadian Olympic team and on the 1992-93 and 1993-94 Canadian National Teams; no small feat for a student also participating in a full NCAA season schedule.

Harlock was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in 1990, but has never played in a Devils sweater. After spending time with St. John's of the AHL, he was eventually signed as a free agent by the Toronto Maple Leafs in August 1993. His first eight NHL appearances were for his hometown Leafs and occurred when he was called up form St. John's over the next three seasons.

In 1996-97 he played for San Antonio of the IHL for a full season. He signed as a free agent with the Washington Capitals and split that season between D.C. and Portland of the AHL. The following year, he was again signed as a free agent, this time by the N.Y. Islanders. He played 70 games for his new team before being claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 1999 Expansion Draft. He has made his home and career with the Thrashers since then, and his team awarded him their annual Gilner-Reeves award after his first full season in honor of his impact on his new community.
