Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Lindsay Vallis
Defenseman Lindsay Vallis was expected to be a big part of the future of the Montreal Canadiens when he was drafted 13th overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft, but it just didn't work out that way. He spent four seasons with the Seattle Thunderbirds playing Junior then spent three seasons in the American Hockey League with Montreal's farm club in Fredricton.

During his third year in the AHL the Canadiens summoned Vallis for a single game. The big winger was unable to produce any points in what proved to be his only NHL game.

Vallis spent moved on from Fredricton in 1994-95 and joined the Worcester Ice Cats for the next two years, the slipped down a rung to the West Coast Hockey League when he joined the Bakersfield Fog in 1996. In 1998-99 Vallis moved on to the United Hockey League where he rediscovered his scoring touch by scoring 100 points in 66 games. In December of that year he tried out for the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears. After playing just four games with the Bears, he returned to the UHL. Vallis's production slipped during his second year with the Smoke, though he still was producing at well over a point-a-game.

Though Vallis was selected in the 2001 UHL expansion draft by the Lehigh Valley Extreme, he chose not to continue his career.
