Playing careerEdit

Don Biggs was drafted 156th overall by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Biggs was unable to break into the line-up and only played one game with the team. In 1985 his rights were traded to the Edmonton Oilers, but once again he was unable to make the team, never playing a game. In 1987 Biggs signed with the Philadelphia Flyers, and eventually played a total of 12 NHL games notching 2 assists.

While Biggs never managed to become a regular member of an NHL club, he was a valuable member of many minor league hockey teams.

Biggs experienced his greatest success as a member of the Cincinnati Cyclones from 1993–1999 and for a stint in 2002. During his time with the team he became a fan favorite and a local celebrity.
