Chad Kilger News


Chad Kilger (born 27 November 1976 in Cornwall, Ontario) is an inactive Canadian professional ice hockey player. He has played for several National Hockey League teams, most recently the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Chad Kilger began his playing career by playing two seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Kingston Frontenacs. He was subsequently drafted fourth overall by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He made the team that fall, but on 7 February 1996 he was traded with Oleg Tverdovsky and a third round draft pick to the Winnipeg Jets for Teemu Selänne, Marc Chouinard and a fourth round draft choice, and subsequently spent most of his playing time with Winnipeg's minor league affiliate, the Springfield Falcons.

Kilger's numbers did not improve until he came to the Chicago Blackhawks. In 86 games in parts of two seasons with the Blackhawks, he scored 36 points. In March 1999, he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers with Daniel Cleary, Ethan Moreau, and Christian Laflamme for Boris Mironov, Dean McAmmond and Jonas Elofsson, and in December 2000, he was sent to the Montreal Canadiens for Sergei Zholtok. He had early success, but as his ice-time dropped so did his point totals. In his first season with the Canadiens he averaged 17:57 in ice-time. In March 2004, he was put on waivers and claimed by the Toronto Maple Leafs.
