Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Joe Corvo
Joseph Corvo was born June 20, 1977 in Oak Park, Illinois. The 4th choice, 83rd overall selection of the Los Angeles Kings in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Corvo is a graduate of the University of Western Michigan where he played two seasons before joining the AHL's Springfield Falcons in 1998-99.

The steady defenseman from Illinois did not play in 99-2000, returning to the ice only the following year as a member of the AHL's Lowell Loch Monsters. Following only one season in Lowell, Corvo joined the Kings AHL affiliate in Manchester where he finished second in team scoring with 50 points (13-37-50).

The 2002-03 season marked Corvo's NHL debut with the Kings. The young rearguard saw action in 50 games with the club, tallying 12 points (5-7-12), before more than doubling his point totals in 2003-04.

Following a season with the Chicago Wolves in the AHL, Corvo recorded a career high 40-point season with the Los Angeles Kings. The defenceman was signed by the Ottawa Senators as a free agent in the summer of 2006. In two seasons with the Senators, Corvo tallied 14 goals and added 50 assists for 64 points in 127 games. During his 2006-07 season, he scored his 100th NHL point and in the playoffs scored a game-winning double overtime goal aginst the playoffs. Midway through the following season, Corvo was traded along with Patrick Eaves to the Carolina Hurricanes for Mike Commodore and Cory Stillman.

On March 3, 2010, the NHL trade deadline, Corvo was on the move again. This time sent to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Brian Pothier and Oskar Osala, though he would not be away from home very long. On July 7, 2010, as an unrestricted free agent, Corvo inked a deal that saw him return the Hurricanes' organization.

On July 5, 2011, Corvo was on the move again. This time he was traded to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a fourth round draft pick.
