Yannick Tremblay (born November 15, 1975) is a professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Graz 99ers in the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga (EBEL). He previously played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Atlanta Thrashers, and the Vancouver Canucks.
Playing career Edit
Tremblay was drafted 145th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. After a three-game stint with the St. John's Maple Leafs (Toronto's American Hockey League [AHL] affiliate team) in 1995–96, he spent the next two seasons splitting time between both Maple Leaf clubs. In 1998–99, he played for the parent club full-time; however, he only played in 35 games.
In 1999, he was claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 1999 NHL Expansion Draft and spent five seasons with the team. His best season statistically in the NHL came in 2002–03, when he scored 8 goals and 22 assists for 30 points in 75 games. By the end of his stint in Atlanta, he solely held the franchise record for most points by a defenceman with 107 until Tobias Enstrom matched him on 14 January 2010. The 2004–05 NHL season was locked out and Tremblay played in Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga for Adler Mannheim, eventually staying for a second season. On 28 July 2006, the Vancouver Canucks signed Tremblay, but he only managed to play 12 games with the Canucks as he spent most of the 2006–07 season in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose, the Canucks' AHL affiliate.
Tremblay then signed with HC Lugano of the Switzerland-based National League A on 18 July 2007, playing only the 2007–08 season before taking a one-year sabbatical. He returned to the DEL after signing with the Straubing Tigers in July 2009. After one season with DEL, he signed with Graz 99ers.
