Sept 28–Don Edwards

Posted: September 29, 2011 in Uncategorized
Don Edwards
Selected by Buffalo Sabres round 5 #89 overall 1975 NHL Amateur Draft
Selected by San Diego Mariners round 10 #135 overall 1975 WHA Amateur Draft.
To say he was a steal would be a huge understatement. Edwards had a highly successful eleven-year NHL career that included stops in Buffalo, Calgary, and Toronto. Many felt his size–or lack of it–would be a major problem in the NHL.
What many find to be incredible about Don Edwards is that he did not start playing goal in hockey until he was 13, when he was able to prove to his father that he first knew how to skate properly. At 12, he was an all-star forward for his team in Binbrook, Ontario and by the following season he was their all-star goalie.
His late uncle Roy was also an NHL goalie with Detroit and Pittsburgh.
