Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brett Lindros
Right-winger Brett Lindros was a skilled power forward who played parts of two seasons with the New York Islanders in the mid-90s. His promising career was cut short by a serious of concussions.

Born in London, Ontario, the younger brother of Eric Lindros starred in junior B with the St. Michael's Buzzers. Beginning in 1992-93 he played for the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs for parts of two seasons while skating extensively with the Canadian national team.

The Islanders at the 1994 Entry Draft took the talented youngster ninth overall. Due to the Owner's Lockout, he played the first half of the 1994-95 season in Kingston before making his NHL debut. Lindros added enthusiasm and grit to New York but the club missed out on the playoffs. Eighteen games into the 1995-96 season, he was sidelined permanently by post-concussion syndrome. After retiring, Lindros began working as a television host of several hockey related programs in Toronto.
