Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Kent Manderville
Kent Manderville of Edmonton was selected in the second round, 20th overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. As an amateur, Manderville used his size and speed to generate scoring opportunities while also showing a maturity in the defensive end.

At 16, Manderville joined the Notre Dame Midget Hounds in Saskatchewan where he suited up for two years before accepting a scholarship to play at Cornell University. During his two years at Cornell, Manderville also played for Canad's junior national team at the World Junior Championships in 1990 and 1991, winning gold.

Manderville devoted the entire 1991-92 season to the Canadian National Team and played in the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics along with such others as Eric Lindros, Joe Juneau and Sean Burke with the result being a silver medal.

Manderville never played with the Calgary Flames, but was part of one of the most one-sided trades in NHL history on January 2, 1992 when he was sent to Toronto in the famous Doug Gilmour deal. The others who went to Toronto along with Gilmour and Manderville were Jamie Macoun, Rick Wamsley and Ric Nattress. The Flames got Gary Leeman, Alexander Godynyuk, Jeff Reese, Michel Petit and Craig Berube.

After three seasons in Toronto, Manderville was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers, where he played for just 37 games. In 1996-97, Manderville signed a free-agent contract with the Hartford Whalers and remained in the organization through its first three years in Carolina.

On March 14, 2000 Manderville was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers where he played in a limited role for two years before joining the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2001-02 and became a regular ever since.
