Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Trent Whitfield
Born in Estevan, Sasktachewan Trent Whitfield recorded three straight 30-goal seasons for the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL and was taken 100th overall by the Boston Bruins in 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He was named to the WHL first and second all-star teams once each and became a solid two way contributor to the Portland Pirates of the AHL after signing as a free agent with the Washington Capitals in Septemeber, 1998.

After splitting the 1998-99 season between the ECHL's Hampton Roads Admirals and the AHL's Portland Pirates, Whitfield was a permanent fixture in the Portland line-up in 1999-00. Despite spending the entire regular season in Portland, Whitfield was recalled by the Capitals for three playoff games in 2000.

The Estevan, Saskatchewan native went on to split the next two seasons between Portland and Washington before being claimed on Waivers by the New York Rangers in January, 2002. After only one game with New York, Whitfield was re-claimed by the Caps in February, 2002 and continued to split his time between the NHL club and its AHL affiliate.

In the summer of 2005, the former WHLer was acquired by the St. Louis Blues.

In the summer of 2009, Trent would again be on the move, this time signing with the Boston Bruins organization as an unrestricted free agent.
