Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Wojtek Wolski
Wojtek Wolski was born February 24, 1986 in Zabrze, Poland. The first round, 21st overall selection of the Colorado Avalanche in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Wolski is a graduate of the OHL's Brampton Battalion.

An offensively gifted forward, Wolski spent four seasons in Brampton registering 328 points (130-198-328) while making his NHL debut with Colorado during the 2005-06 season. Despite some early success with the Avs, the club opted to return the young forward to his junior club, where he would dominate the league and earn OHL MVP honours.

Following an impressive 2005-06 season in Brampton, the Avs recalled Wolski once his Battalion were eliminated from the OHL playoffs. Wolski became a regular on the Avalanche line-up in 2006-07 and during that season he ranked fourth in the league rookie scoring race with 50 points in 76 games. The following year he tallied 48 points and helped Colorado back into the NHL playoffs.

On March 3, 2010, the NHL trade deadline, Wolski's time in Colorado would come to an end. He was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter.

Though things started out strongly in Phoenix for the big winger (he recorder 18 points in 18 games to conclude the 2009-10 season) his time in the desert would be short-lived. On January 10, 2011, Wolski found himself on the move again, this time traded to the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Michal Rozsival.

New York would prove to be another short-lived home for Wolski. In 2011-12 he would fail to record a goal for the Rangers and would spend time in the American Hockey League with the Connecticut Whale before being traded to the Florida Panthers on February 25, 2012 in exchange for Mike Vernace.
