Blake Sloan (born July 27, 1975) is an American professional ice hockey player currently with Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). Although he played forward in the NHL, the majority of his career has been played as a defenceman.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Sloan played for the University of Michigan from 93–96 and won the NCAA championship in 1996. He also was awarded the Hockey Humanitarian Award in 1996–97, given annually to the player judged "college hockey's finest citizen." 
Sloan started his NHL career with the Dallas Stars in 1999. He started the 1998–99 season in the minor leagues with the Houston Aeros. At a game where Dallas Stars scouts were their check on other players, Sloan caught the eye of the Stars and promptly acquired him. He won a Stanley Cup with Dallas in 1999. His determination and effort earned him the nickname "The Caffeinated Squirrel", by Dallas Stars broadcaster Daryl Reaugh.
After three seasons in Mannheim, on July 23, 2009 he signed a one-year deal to captain fellow DEL team, the Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg. In the ensuing 2009–10 season, Sloan recorded his best German season to score 26 points in 55 games. On April 20, 2010, Sloan agreed to a one-year extension to remain in Wolfsburg.
