Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brandon Convery
Kingston, Ontario's Brandon Convery was a highly touted Maple Leaf prospect after he was made Toronto's 1st pick, 8th overall in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. Convery, who was born February 4th, 1974, scored 40 goals in just 44 games for the Sudbury Wolves during his draft year, but by 1994, he had been traded twice in the Ontario Hockey League and eventually turned pro that year.

With the Leafs farm club in St. John's Convery impressed in his first full season putting up 71 points in 76 games, but his production dipped the following year. Despite his scoring falling off, he made his NHL debut in 1995-96 playing 11 games for Toronto and adding 7 points in that time.

The next year Convery got a longer look at the NHL level playing 39 games for the Leafs but posting just 10 points for them. in 1997-98, Convery didn't make the Leafs roster out of training camp and once again found himself in Newfoundland playing in the American Hockey League. Though he lit up for St. John's with 63 points in 49 games, it took a trade to get Convery back to the NHL.

The Maple Leafs traded Convery to the Vancouver Canucks on March 7th, 1998 and he played 7 games for them following the trade. Convery spent a large chunk of the next year in the minors, but in the time he spent with the Canucks that year, he was productive posting 9 points in 12 games. However, he didn't quite fit into Vancouver's plans and he was placed on waivers where they Los Angeles Kings claimed him. Convery spent just three games with LA and didn't score a point.

The 1999-2000 season was a wash-out for Convery, who sustained a major injury that prevented him from playing any games at all that year and robbed him of any momentum in his North American career. Convery went to Switzerland in 2000 and played a year there then headed to Sweden for the following campaign.
