Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brian Kinsella
Centre Brian Kinsella played a few games for the Washington Capitals in the 1970s. Other than his short NHL tenure, he was known for his scoring exploits in junior and two different minor pro leagues.

The native of Barrie, Ontario scored 77 goals in three seasons for the OHA's Oshawa Generals. Following his last year of junior, Kinsella was drafted 91st overall in the 1974 Amateur Draft by the expansion Washington Capitals. He spent his first pro season in 1974-75 moving between three minor pro clubs but the instability did not slow his production.

Kinsella played four games for the Caps in 1975-76 and six games the next season before returning to the minors. He scored 106 goals in four seasons with the IHL's Port Huron Flags then spent three productive years with the Toledo Goaldiggers of the same league before retiring in 1984.
