Jason Podollan was born February 18, 1976 in Vernon, B.C. The 3rd choice, 31st overall selection of the Florida Panthers in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, Podollan is a graduate of the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association and of the British Colombia Junior Hockey League.

The Vernon, B.C. native played in two games with the Western Hockey League's Spokane Chiefs during the 1991-92 season before returning to their line up the following year. The former Penticton Panther spent four seasons with Spokane while playing in three playoff games with the International Hockey League's Cincinnati Cyclones in 1995.

A member of Canada's 1996 Gold Medal World Junior Team, Podollan was a WHL West Second Team All-Star in 1996 and made his NHL debut with the Panthers during the 1996-97 season. Podollan began the season with Florida's American Hockey League affiliate in Carolina before making his debut later on into the season. In 19 games with Florida, Podollan managed to score his first NHL goal and shortly after found himself being traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Upon his arrival in Toronto, Podollan played in ten games with his new club before ending the season with the team's AHL affiliate in St. John's. Podollan spent the entire 1997-98 and the better part of the 1998-99 season in St. John's while playing in only a handful of games with the Leafs.

Towards the end of the 1998-99 season, Toronto traded Podollan to Los Angeles where he played in handful of games with the Kings and another handful with their IHL affiliate in Long Beach to end the season.

In 99-2000, Podollan spent the majority of the season with the AHL's Lowell Lock Monsters while playing in only one game with the Kings before spending time with the IHL's Detroit Vipers and Manitoba Moose 2000-01.

Podollan joined the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2001-02 and has played in one game with the New York Islanders.
