Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Wren
Bob Wren was born September 16, 1974 in Preston, Ontario. The third choice, 94th overall, of the Los Angeles Kings, Wren was a member of the Detroit Ambassadors (1991-92) and Detroit Jr. Red Wings of the Ontario Hockey League before making his professional debut in 1994-95.

In his three years with Detroit, Wren, a crafty stick handler, scored 134 goals and 211 assists for 345 career points (regular season and playoffs) and was an OHL Second Team All-Star in 1993 and again in 1994. He never played for the Los Angeles Kings organisation. Instead, he signed as a free agent with the Hartford Whalers in September 1994 and joined the AHL's Springfield Falcons.

The 1994-95 season saw Wren spend the majority of the year with the Falcons, while playing in two games with the Richmond Renegades of the East Coast Hockey League. After a 31-point rookie season in Springfield, he joined the ECHL's Knoxville Cherokees where in 50 games he totalled 56 points on 21 goals and 35 assists, also playing in one game for the IHL's Detroit Vipers.

After returning to the AHL in 1996-97 with the Baltimore Bandits, Wren finished second in team scoring and signed as a free agent with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim during the summer. Wren spent the better part of the 1997-98 season with the Ducks farm team in Cincinnati, finishing second in AHL scoring with 42 goals and 58 assists for 100 points, along with 150 penalty minutes. A member of the Canadian AHL All-Stars at the AHL All-Star Game, Wren's solid play would earn him a call up to Anaheim where he made his NHL debut with the Ducks.

In 1998-99 and 1999-2000, Wren returned to Cincinnati where for the second and third consecutive seasons he led the team in scoring and was a member of the Canadian AHL All-Star Team at the AHL All-Star Game.

Although he spent the majority of 2000-01 season back with Cincinnati, Bob Wren returned to the NHL with Anaheim for one game during the season before signing as a free agent with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the summer of 2001.

When the 2001-02 season began, Bob Wren was a member of the St. John's Maple Leafs and had played one game for the Maple Leafs.
