Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dennis Abgrall
Drafted 70th overall by Los Angeles in 1973, Abgrall played only 13 games with the Kings and in the NHL. After three years of junior hockey in Saskatoon (1970-73), he played minor pro for two years and played briefly for L.A. in '75-'76 as a callup from Fort Worth of the CHL.

At season's end, he realized his NHL chances were slim, so he signed with the WHA's Cincinnati Stingers who owned his rights after the team that had drafted him, the Los Angeles Sharks, went belly up. Abgrall was claimed by the Winnipeg Jets in the expansion draft in 1979, but never got a chance to play in the 'Peg.

Instead, he later continued his career at the next level down, playing three years in Germany and then Belgium with Liege in 1981-82, his last year of professional hockey.
