Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Yannick Tremblay
Born in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec, Yannick Tremblay played in the Quebec Midget AAA Hockey League with Montreal-Bourassa in 1991-92. The next year he played hockey while finishing his CEGEP program at Bourassa College then attended St. Thomas University for a year. The young blueliner was chosen 145th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft while he was in the midst of two solid years with the QMJHL's Beauport Harfangs.

Tremblay spent most of the 1996-97 season in the AHL with the St. John's Maple Leafs. He was a solid role player for the next two years. After seeing limited action with the Maple Leafs, Tremblay recieved a chance to play regularly after he was claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 1999 Expansion Draft. Upon his arrival in Atlanta, Tremblay became a key cog on the Thrasher blue line, scoring ten goals and 31 points in 1999-2000. Looking to build on his strong showing from the previous year, Tremblay's 2000-01 season would be limited to a mere 46 games before rebounding the next two seasons with 24 and 30 point seasons.

In 2003-04, Tremblay missed the majority of the season and was limited to a mere 38 games. Tremblay would spend the next two seasons in Sherbrooke of the QNAHL and Adler Mannheim of the German League. He would return to North America as he signed as a free agent by the Vancouver Canucks in the summer of 2006. As a Canuck, Tremblay spent most of his time with the club's AHL affiliate in Manitoba before he signed as a free agent in the off-season with Lugano of the Swiss League.

On the international stage, Tremblay represented Canada at the 2000 World Championships.
