Antigonish selects D. Trent Yawney

He played some of his best hockey as a member of coach Dave King's Canadian National Team. Yawney was not an overly physical player, but he was a strong skater with a good positional game so he was not a liability in the defensive zone. He had enough offensive ability to average 15 to 20 points season. Yawney has over 200 games of international hockey experience on his resume, including the 1988 Olympics and the World Championships of 1991 and 1992.

Yawney was a solid defenseman for the Blackhawks from 1988 until he was traded to Calgary in 1991 where he spent the next five seasons. In 1996 he signed with the St. Louis Blues and played there for one season before returning to Chicago, signing with the Blackhawks as a free agent, in 1997.

He injured his arm in a game against the Colorado Avalanche on January 9, 1999, and announced his retirement the following month after a twelve-year NHL career.
