Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dale Rominski
Right-winger Dale Rominski played three games with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1999-00. He was a tireless worker in the corners who could pounce on rebounds for the occasional goal in a career spent mostly in college and the minors.

Born Farmington Hills, Michigan, Rominski starred at Brother Rice High School before moving up to Detroit Compuware of the NAJHL in 1994-95. He then enjoyed four solid years at the University of Michigan where he contributed to NCAA titles in 1996 and 1998.

Following his senior year Rominski signed with the Lightning as a free agent. He scored 14 goals as a rookie pro with the IHL's Detroit Vipers and was recalled to the NHL for three games. He spent the 2000-01 season with the Vipers and hoped for another chance at big league ice time.
