Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andy Delmore
Born in LaSalle, Ontario, Andy Delmore played Junior B in Chatham then excelled in the OHL with the North Bay Centennials and Sarnia Sting. Delmore went on to play four games with the AHL's Fredericton Canadiens in 1996-97 before returning to Sarnia for his final year of Junior. In June, 1997 he signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Flyers and went on to score 39 points for the club's AHL affiliate in 1997-98. Delmore played another year-and-a-half before joining the NHL on a full time basis.

After looking solid in 27 games with the Flyers in 1999-00, the talented blueliner played 66 games for the club the next season. He scored five goals, played improved defence and showed signs of utilizing his shot while playing the point with the extra man.

Delmore's stay in Philly came to an end following the 2000-01 season, as he found himself with the Nashville Predators. Upon his arrival with Nashville, Delmore quarterbacked the team's powerplay for two seasons, registering 72 points (34-38-72) before being dealt to the Buffalo Sabres in the summer of 2003.

Following two strong seasons in Nashville, Delmore struggled for ice-time with the Sabres and ended up with the Boston Bruins in the latter stages of the season before heading to Germany in 2004-05. Coming off solid season in Germany, Delmore looked to regain his form with the Detroit Red Wings, however, prior to the 2005-06 season was claimed on waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Delmore spent most of the 2005-06 season with the Syracuse Crunch in the AHL, recording 72 points and appeared in only a handful of games for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

On July 1, 2006 Delmore was signed as a free agent by the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, his stint with the Lightning was short lived as the team would send him to Atlanta in February, 2007. He would spend the remainder of the year with the Thrashers AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves. After competing in North America throughout his entire hockey career, Delmore opted to sign as a free agent with the German League's Hamburg Freezers in 2007.

Delmore would return to the NHL when he was signed as a free agent by the Detroit Red Wings on July 28, 2009.

On March 3, 2010, the NHL trade deadline, Delmore was traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Riley Armstrong.
