TTM Mail Day #21: Craig Wolanin
Craig Wolanin is another guy I knew very little about but needed his card signed for a set. Wolanin played in the NHL for 13 season and played in over 600 NHL games.
Wolanin was actually a highly touted played going 3rd overall in the 1985 NHL entry draft to the New Jersey Devils. The Devils were a very weak team and needed the help right away, so at the age of 18 Wolanin entered the NHL. He managed a career high in points with 31 in his second season and then never produced as hoped he would. He settled in as a stay at home defenseman for the rest of his NHL career.
