Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Trevor Letowski
Trevor Letowski was a high scoring center with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL, but his 5'10 frame and a perceived lack of toughness led to him being available in the seventh round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft where he was plucked by the Phoenix Coyotes. In 1997, his final year with the Sting, Letowski was selected to play for Team Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships where he won a gold medal.

The following year he turned professional with the AHL's Springfield Falcons and scored 11 goals and 31 points. His second year with the Falcons proved to be his breakout season when he chipped in 32 goals and 67 points in as many games. The Coyotes called him up and gave him a look during 14 games and he managed two goals and four points in that time. His short audition set him up for the 1999-00, when he became a full-time NHLer. Letowski scored 19 goals and 39 points for Phoenix, as well as a goal and an assist in five playoff games. The former Sting went on to play parts of four seasons with the Coyotes organization before the club opted to trade the young forward to the Vancouver Canucks in a four player deal.

Letowksi fit in immediately in Vancouver. Blessed with good speed, tenacity and willingness to throw around his 5'10 frame made, Letowski and his line were an important part of the Canucks solid second half and the team's rise throughout the 2002-03 season.

After parts of two seasons with the Canucks, Letowski was on the move yet again in the summer of 2003, this time landing in Columbus with the Blue Jackets. In 2003-04 as a member of the Blue Jackets Letowski notched a career high 32 points. The following season saw his point production slightly decrease, however he would lead the team in games played with 81.

In the summer of 2006 Letowski was signed as free agent by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Aside from his World Junior experience, Letowski represented Canada at the 2000 World Championship.
