Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Lee Sorochan
Defenceman Lee Sorochan played a handful of games for the Calgary Flames in the late 90s. He was a tough customer who could make plays on offense in a career spent chiefly in the AHL.

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Sorochan was selected 34th overall by the New York Rangers in 1993 after a solid year anchoring the Lethbridge Broncos' blueline. He spent two more years in junior then added grit and enthusiasm to the AHL's Binghamton Rangers.

In March, 1999 the rugged blueliner was sent to the Flames. He was a strictly a minor leaguer for his new club but was recalled in both the 1998-99 and 99-00 seasons. Sorochan then moved on to Europe where he competed on the London Knights of the British League and Finland's Jokerit Helsinki.
