Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brent Tremblay
Brent Tremblay was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario, where he played minor hockey in his hometown and high school hockey with the Algonquin Barons.

In 1974 he was selected by the Toronto Marlboros in the sixth round of the OHA Jr. A draft. He played the next two seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Hull Festivals, the Hull Olympiques and Trois-Rivieres Draveurs. The left handed shooting defenceman was named to the QMJHL West Division Second All-Star Team in 1976. Tremblay was selected in the eighth round, 127th overall by the Washington Capitals at the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft.

Tremblay turned pro in 1977 and split his season between the International Hockey League's Port Huron Flags and the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears. During his second year as a pro, Tremblay patrolled the blue line for the Bears again, but also played in his first NHL contest against the Montreal Canadiens, registering a shot on goal.

The following year, Tremblay started the season in Hershey but was called up to Washington where he played nine games. He managed to make the score sheet by scoring a goal against the Hartford Whalers who had Gordie Howe in the lineup.

After just three years of professional hockey, and at 22 years of age, Tremblay was forced to retire from the game of hockey due to an aggravated back injury that he sustained while playing the game.

Tremblay would then become actively involved with Hockey Ministries International.
