Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- David Latta
Left-winger David Latta played parts of four seasons with the Quebec Nordiques in the 80s and 90s. A fine scorer in junior, he spent most of his pro career as a useful two-way performer in the minors.

Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario Latta played junior B with Orillia Travelways before joining the OHL's Kitchener Rangers. He was chosen 15th overall by the Nords in 1985 after scoring 38 goals the returned for two more years of junior. In 1986-87 he scored 78 points in 50 games for Kitchener and was a member of the Canadian team that was disqualified at the World Junior Championships.

Latta saw spot duty in ten games with Quebec in 1987-88 but spent most of his time with the AHL's Fredericton Express. After scoring 12 points in 24 games the next year he fell out of favour and was strictly a minor leaguer save for a one game appearance in 1990-91. Latta also spent 30 games with the Canadian national team in 1990-91 then retired in 1992. After two years away from the game he returned briefly with Germany's Augsburg Panthers before hanging up his skates for good in 1995-96.
