Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Devin Setoguchi
Devin Setoguchi was born January 1, 1987 in Taber, Alberta. The first round, eighth overall selection of the San Jose Sharks in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Setoguchi honed his skills in the WHL with the Saskatoon Blades and the Price George Cougars.

A natural goal scorer, Setoguchi became a fan favourite in Saskatoon in his second season with the club when he scored 64 points in 69 games. After another productive season in Saskatoon in which he was one of the league's top scorers, Setoguchi spent his final season of junior hockey with the Price George Cougars.

He made his professional hockey debut in 2007-08 when he split his season between San Jose and their AHL affiliate in Worcester. Despite only competing in 44 games in the NHL, Setoguchi was one of the league's top rookie goal scorers.

Setoguchi's goal totals dipped the following two seasons, though he continued to play a key role in the Sharks' success. However, looking for a change, the Sharks traded Setoguchi to the Minnesota Wild on June 24, 2011, along with Charlie Coyle and a first round draft pick in exchange for defenceman Brent Burns and a second round draft pick.

After two seasons in the Wild organization, which included a 19 goal campaign in 2011-12, Setoguchi was traded to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a second round draft pick. He would spend just one season in Winnipeg before signing as a free agent with the Calgary Flames in the summer of 2014.

Setoguchi spent the 2015-16 season with HC Davos of the Swiss National League A, where he recorded 24 points in 30 games. As a free agent in the summer of 2016, Setoguchi inked a deal with the Los Angeles Kings and joined the club for the 2016-17 season.
