Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Chad Erickson
Goaltender Chad Erickson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on August 21, 1970. Erickson tended goal for the University of Minnesota-Duluth for three seasons and earned WCHA Second All Star Team and NCAA First All-American Team honours for his efforts in the 1990 season.

Erickson, who was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in 1988, turned pro following his collegiate career and reported to the Devils farm team in Utica for the 1991-92 season. However, before the season was over, Erickson got a call up to the big team and started two games for the Devils, winning one of them.

Erickson's second season of professional hockey didn't have the same highlights but was eventful, nonetheless, as Erickson suited up for three teams in three different leagues.

This started a trend for him. By 1996-97, Erickson had stopped bucks for nine different professional teams. That year he settled in with the Austin Ice Bats of the Western Professional League. After two years with the Ice Bats, Erickson jumped to the San Angelo Outlaws then switched leagues again in 1999.

Erickson joined the Tulsa Oilers of the Central Hockey League that year and served as their netminder for the next two years.
