Career[edit | edit source]

Wanvig was originally drafted 89th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, but he re-entered the draft and was selected 36th overall by the Minnesota Wild in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. While with the Wild affiliate, the Houston Aeros, in 2002-2003, Kyle Wanvig scored three game winning goals in the first series of the playoffs, against the Milwaukee Admirals, which led to a Calder Cup Championship.

In July 2006, he was signed by the Atlanta Thrashers. In February 2007, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning along with Stephen Baby for Andy Delmore and Andre Deveaux.

He came to the Swedish Elitserien to play for Brynäs IF in November 2008. However in January 2009 Wanvig's contract with Brynäs IF was terminated with immediate effect.

In 2009, Wanvig returned to North America, joining the American Hockey League's Portland Pirates.

In July 2010 he signed a contract with the Augsburg Panthers, 2010 vice champion of the highest German league, the DEL.[1]
