Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Trent Kaese
A stocky right-winger who could score and battle for the puck in the corners, Trent Kaese made to the NHL for one game with the Buffalo Sabres in 1988-89. He was a successful junior and minor pro player who later spent six seasons in Europe.

Born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Kaese was a solid junior forward with Lethbridge, Swift Current and Calgary of the WHL. In 1985 he was chosen 161st overall by the Buffalo Sabres at the NHL Entry Draft. His first pro season in 1987-88 was split between the AHL and IHL.

The Buffalo Sabres called him up for one game in 1988-89 but he spent most of the year with the Rochester Americans. After a 56-goal outburst for the Winston-Salem Thunderbirds of the ECHL in 1989-90, he was placed on the league's first all-star team. The next year Kaese left North America to try his luck in the United Kingdom. He became an explosive scorer in the British League with the Peterborough Pirates, Milton Keynes Kings, and Blackburn Hawks before retiring in 1995. His best season was 1993-94 when he scored 96 goals and 188 points for Milton Keynes.
