Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Lee Giffin
Right-winger Lee Giffin spent parts of two seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the late 80s. Although his NHL tenure was brief, he followed through on the promise demonstrated in junior by having a fine minor league career.

Born in Chatham, Ontario Giffin played junior B with the Newmarket Flyers before joining the OHL's Oshawa Generals. He was chosen 23rd overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1985 and helped the Gens reach the Memorial Cup tournament two years later. After recording 100 points in 48 games for Oshawa in 1986-87, Giffin was named to the OHL first all-star team.

After beginning his pro career in the NHL, Giffin was relegated to the IHL's Muskegon Lumberjacks. Over the next decade he also played a year in the NHL then settled down in the Colonial League before hanging up his skates after averaging a point per game for the Mobile Mystics in 1997-98.
