Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Blake Sloan
Born in Park Ridge, Illinois on July 27th, 1975 Blake Sloan played four years at the University of Michigan then parts of four more seasons in the IHL before he signed an NHL contract as a free agent. In doing so, Sloan showed excellent timing as he joined the Dallas Stars just in time for a playoff march in 1999.

Sloan, who was in the Dallas lineup two days after signing with the team on March 10th, 1999 fit in right away with the Stars. Sloan added some grit and solid physical play as the Stars advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals where they downed the Buffalo Sabres. The following campaign Sloan became a full-time NHLer and posted his first points. By year's end, he had four goals and 17 points. That spring the Stars again went to the Finals, but this time left empty handed. 33 games into his third year with the Stars Sloan was claimed on waivers by the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets.

With the 'Jackets, Sloan continued his physical style of play and settled in with the young club on the team's checking line before joining the Calgary Flames in the latter stages of the 2001-02 season. Sloan went on to play parts of two seasons with the Flames before re-joining the Stars organization in 2003-04. Upon his return to the Stars, Sloan went on to play 28 games with the club while seeing limited action with the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins before helping Team USA capture the bronze medal at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.
