Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andy Chiodo
Andy Chiodo was born April 25, 1983 in Toronto, Ontario. The sixth round, 166th overall selection of the New York Islanders in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Chiodo is a graduate of the OHLs St. Michaels Majors.

Following a three-year stint with St. Michaels and posting a 58-40-14 record with a 2.78 GAA, Chiodo went on to make his professional debut in 2003-04. Although, he was originally drafted by the Islanders, Chiodo re-entered the draft in 2003 and was subsequently drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the seventh round, 199th overall.

In his rookie campaign, the Toronto native spent the majority of the 2003-04 season with the AHLs Wilkes-Barre Penguins and a brief stint with the ECHLs Wheeling Nailers before making his NHL debut with the parent club in the latter stages of the season. Chiodo went on to play eight games with the Penguins, finishing with a 3-4-1 record, while helping the baby Penguins reach the Calder Cup final. Although Wilkes-Barre/Scranton came up short in their bid to capture their first Calder Cup title, Chiodo was solid in goal and one of the key players in their run to the final.
