Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andrew Alberts
Andrew Alberts was born June 30, 1981 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The sixth round, 179th overall selection of the Boston Bruins in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Alberts is a graduate of Hockey East's Boston College Screaming Eagles.

Prior to joining Boston College, Alberts played two seasons with Waterloo of the USHL before enrolling at BC in the fall of 2001. A solid defender, Alberts played four seasons with the Screaming Eagles (2001-2005) receiving numerous honours while finishing his collegiate career with 66 points (16-50-66).

Following his senior year at BC, Alberts signed a try-out agreement with the AHL's Providence Bruins and saw action in eight regular season games and 16 playoff games before making his NHL debut with Boston in the fall of 2005. Over the next two seasons, Alberts remained with the Bruins and signed a multi-year contract with the club in 2007. However, his career took a turn for the worse when a concussion knocked him out of the majority of the 2007-08 season.

On October 13, 2008 Alberts' tenure with the Bruins came to an end when the former Boston College Eagle was sent to the Philadelphia Flyers for Ned Lukacevic and a conditional 2009 fourth round draft pick.

After just one year with the Flyers, Alberts signed on with the Carolina Hurricanes in the summer of 2009, inking a 2-year contract with the club.

On March 3, 2010, the NHL trade deadline, Alberts was traded to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a third round draft pick.
