Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Colin Fraser
Colin Fraser was born January 28, 1985 in Surrey, British Columbia. Philadelphia's third round selection, 69th overall selection in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft is a graduate of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels.

A forceful centre, Fraser spent four years with the Red Deer Rebels before making his professional debut with the Norfolk Admirals in 2004-05. Prior to his stint in Norfolk he was traded to Chicago by Philadelphia with Jim Vandermeer and Los Angeles' 2nd round choice (previously acquired, Chicago selected Bryan Bickell) in 2004 Entry Draft for Alex Zhamnov and Washington's 4th round choice, on February 19, 2004. He made his first NHL appearance on January 6, 2006 in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes.

In Chicago, Fraser was part of the Stanley Cup championship squad that ended the Blackhawks's 49-year drought, but only days after the final buzzer had sounded he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a sixth round draft pick.

Fraser would spend just one season in Alberta before he was on the move again. On June 26, 2011, he was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Ryan Smyth.

In Los Angeles, Fraser would once again reach hockey's ultimate peak. He was part of the Kings club that stormed through the Western Conference playoffs and defeated the New Jersey Devils to capture the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
