Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jamie McLennan
A native of Edmonton, Edmonton, Jamie McLennan starred for the St. Albert Royals of the AMHL before joining the WHL in 1988-89. He was chosen 48th overall by the New York Islanders in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft after a fine junior career with the Spokane Chiefs and Lethbridge Hurricanes. In 1991, he was named to the WHL East First All-Star Team after winning 32 games in 56 appearances.

McLennan split his first pro season between the AHL's Capital District Islanders and the Richmond Renegades of the ECHL. In 1992-93, he won 17 games and recorded a fine 3.23 goals against mark for Capital District. Over the next three years, McLennan was a solid reserve in New York and also spent time filling a roster spot in the minors.

In July 1996, the St. Louis Blues signed the young backstopper as a free agent. After spending the 1996-97 season with the AHL's Worcester Ice Cats, McLennan split the goaltending chores for two years with Grant Fuhr. In 1997-98, McLennan was the recipient of the Bill Masterton Trophy.

McLennan only played in 19 games when the Blues rode Roman Turek's hot goalkeeping to an NHL-high 114 points in 1999-00. The Minnesota Wild wasted no time selecting him at the 2000 Expansion Draft. Mclennan recorded two shutouts and a 2.64 goals against average on the first year club as it experienced the expected growing pains of a first year franchise.

After 38 games with the Wild in 2000-01, McLennan spent the entire 2001-02 season with the AHL's Houston Aeros before he was acquired by the Calgary Flames from the Wild in the summer of 2002. McLennan went on to play 22 games with the Flames before being traded to the New York Rangers in a deal that brought rugged-winger Chris Simon to Calgary. McLennan's stay in New York was short lived, as he was acquired by the Florida Panthers in the summer of 2004.

As a member of the Panthers, McLennan would see action in 17 games with the club before returing to the Calgary Flames after signing on as a free agent in the off-season.
