Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Daniel Corso
Born April 3, 1978 in Montreal, Quebec, Daniel Corso became a star in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League during his four seasons with the Victoriaville Tigres between 1994 and 1998.

In 1994-95, Corso collected 53 points and was named to the QMJHL All-Rookie Team. The next season, 1995-96, Corso exploded with 49 goals and 114 points. At the NHL Entry Draft in 1996, Corso was the sixth choice of the St. Louis Blues; the 169th selection taken that year. In 1996-97, he earned a spot on the First All-Star Team and was named the QMJHL's Most Valuable Player after firing 51 goals and 119 points.

In 1998, Corso joined the Blues' AHL affiliate in Worcester and spent two full seasons there, collecting 55 points during 1999-2000. His strong development earned Corso his first taste of NHL life on December, 2001. Throughout the 2001-02 season, Corso appeared in 28 games with St. Louis, collecting 10 goals and 13 points.

After five seasons with the Blues organization, Corso signed as a free-agent with the Ottawa Senators in the summer of 2003. Upon signing with the Senators, Corso went to play half of the 2003-04 season with its AHL affiliate in Binghamton before being dealt to the Atlanta Thrashers in January, 2004. Corso went on to play a handful of games with the Thrashers, seeing most of his action with the club's AHL affiliate in Chicago.

After a pair of seasons with the Kassel Huskies and Frankfurt Lions of the German League, Corso was signed as a free agend by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 2006.

Corso's stint with the Flyers was short lived as he was dealt in November, 2006 to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Darren Reid.

On the international stage, Corso represented his homeland at the 1998 World Junior Championships.
