Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jakub Kindl
Jakub Kindl was born on February 10, 1987, in Sumperk, Czechoslovakia. The big defenseman made his North American debut in the Ontario Hockey League where he drew the attention of the Detroit Red Wings, who selected him 19th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Following his junior career, Kindle joined the Red Wings' AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins where he spent the next several seasons before finally getting his first taste of NHL action. In the 2009-10 season, Kindle appeared in three games for the Red Wings, failing to register a point.

Kindl would split his time in the Red Wings organization between Detroit and Grand Rapids. In 2013-14 he would appear in 66 games for the Red Wings, where the big defender scored twice and added 17 assists.

Injuries plagued Kindl during the 2014-15 season. He would appear in just 35 games for the Red Wings and a pair of games in the American League. He would once again split time between the NHL and AHL to start the 2015-16 season before being traded to the Florida Panthers in the days leading up to the NHL trade deadline.
