Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jon Sim
Born on September 29th, 1977 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Jon Sim spent one season playing Junior in the QMJHL with Laval before moving on to the OHL and the Sarnia Sting for the next four years, which included a 1998 All-Star selection. Sim was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft and made his debut with them during the 1998-99 season.

Sim played just seven games with the Stars during the regular season but he appeared in four more contests en route to the Stars 1999 Stanley Cup Championships, the first in the franchises history. The following year Sim split his time between the Stars and their IHL affiliate in Michigan. At the NHL level Sim played 25 games and scored five goals and 13 points.

In the 1999-00 season Sim followed the same pattern splitting his time, this time getting into 15 games with Dallas while honing his game in the IHL. In the summer of 2001 the Dallas Stars signed several high profile free agent forwards to their club, but Sim was still able to work his way into the lineup at the big league level for part of the season. After two more seasons in the Stars organization, Sim joined the Nashville Predators midway through the 2002-03 season. However, he would only play a handful of games with the Preds before he was dealt to the Los Angeles Kings.

The former Sarnina Sting would play in 48 games with the Kings in 2003-04 before being claimed off of waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the latter stages of the season. After a mere 15 games with the Penguins, Sim was acquired by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 2005 and was instrumental in leading the AHL's Philadelphia Flyers to the Calder Cup title.

In 2005-06, the New Glasgow, NS native was able to earn a spot on the Flyers roster before being dealt to the Florida Panthers just prior to the Olympic break. Sim's stint with the Panthers was short lived as the left winger was signed as a free agent by the Atlanta Thrashers in the off-season.

As a member of the Atlanta Thrashers, Sim recorded 17 goals and 12 assists for 29 points and was a regular in the club's lineup appearing in 77 games. In the off-season, the tenacious forward found himself on the move once again signing a three-year contract with the New York Islanders.
