Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Don Wheldon
Defenseman Donald Wheldon played two games in the National Hockey League during his short career as a professional hockey player.

Wheldon played his Junior hockey with the London Knights where he caught the attention of the St. Louis Blues who drafted him 87th overall in the 1974 Amateur Draft. The big blue liner turned professional the following year primarily with the Columbus Owls of the International Hockey League, but he also spent some time with the Denver Spurs and the Blues.

In his two games with St. Louis Wheldon was unable to make much of an impression with no points or penalty minutes during his brief stay.

For the 1975-76 season Wheldon joined the Winston-Salem Polar Bears of the Southern Hockey League, but after playing just 37 games during his second season with them, Wheldon was out of hockey.
