Right-winger Graeme Townshend was a role player in parts of five seasons during the 1980s and '90s. He was a solid grinder who could drive to the net and notched three 20-goal seasons in the minors.
The first NHL player born in Jamaica, Townshend played four years at RPI in the ECAC. After scoring 22 points as a senior for the Engineers in 1988-89, he was signed as a free agent by the Boston Bruins. Townshend spent most of his first two seasons as a pro with the AHL's Maine Mariners but suited up for 22 games in Boston.
Townshend worked as a role player with the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators before he was relegated to the minors in 1994-95. He registered consecutive 20-goal seasons for the IHL's Houston Aeros in 1996 and 1997. After playing a year with the Lake St. Charles Pirates, Townshend retired and became the head coach of the Macon Whoopee of the CHL on 1999-2000.
