Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ken Yaremchuk
A product of the Portland Winter Hawks of the WHL, Ken Yaremchuk was drafted 7th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1982 Entry Draft. During his junior career, he was named to the WHL First All-Star Team in 1982 and the Second All-Star Team in 1983. In 1983 the Winter Hawks won the Memorial Cup tournament championship on home ice and Yaremchuk was named to the tournament's All-Star Team.

Yaremchuk made his NHL debut with the Hawks in the 1983-84 season, and appeared in 188 games with Chicago over the next three years. He was part of a compensation award made to Toronto in 1986 and only appeared in 20 games with the Maple Leafs before breaking his foot in practice and missing the remainder of the 1986-87 regular season.

In the 1987-88 season the Leafs made Yaremchuk available to the Canadian National Team, and he appeared in 38 pre-Olympic and eight Olympic tournament games for Canada. Yaremchuk also saw spot duty with the national team in 1992 and 1993.

After the Olympics in 1988, Yaremchuk returned to Toronto for the balance of the season. He split his time between Toronto and the Newmarket Saints of the AHL in 1988-89 before moving his career to Europe, where he played until 1999.
