Defenseman Kevin Dahl was recruited by the National Hockey League’s Montreal Canadiens in 1988, during his second year playing ice hockey for Bowling Green State University. Prior to this he had skated with the Stratford Cullitons of the Ontario Hockey Association from 1985 through 1986. Despite the early selection he never played a game with the Canadiens, and his NHL career did not materialize until 1992. In the meantime he spent the 1990-1991 season split between the Winston-Salem Thunderbirds of the East Coast Hockey League and the Fredericton Canadiens of the American Hockey League, and then joined the Canadian national men’s ice hockey team at the 1992 Winter Olympics. At the tournament he played in eight games and scored two goals, helping his nation win a silver medal, its first Olympic podium finish since 1968. He also suited up for thirteen games with the International Hockey League’s Salt Lake Golden Eagles that year. In 1992 he signed with the NHL’s Calgary Flames and began his four-season stint with the team, which was followed by a transfer to the Phoenix Coyotes that saw him skating all but two games with the associated Las Vegas Thunder of the IHL. He returned to the Flames in 1997, but spent the majority of that year in the IHL as well, this time with the Chicago Wolves. For 1998-1999 he bounced between the NHL’s St. Louis Blues and Toronto Maple Leafs, suiting up for three matches with the latter, but again spent most of his time with the Wolves. From 1999 to 2001 he skated exclusively with the squad, save for four games with the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets. His final stop was Germany, where he ended his career in 2004 after three seasons as a member of the Nurnberg Ice Tigers. He is now the COO of Pride Signs, a sports marketing and fundraising company.
