Daymond Langkow was drafted 5th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft after a season in which he led the WHL in scoring with a total of 140 points while playing for the Tri-City Americans. He has also played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Phoenix Coyotes and is currently playing on the Calgary Flames. He was traded to the Calgary Flames after the 2003-04 season as part of a deal which brought Denis Gauthier and Oleg Saprykin to the Coyotes.
Langkow has never really enjoyed an overabundance of offensive success, but he is a noted power forward that plays the game with speed and hustle. He a consistent player and puts up moderate numbers quietly, continuing to form a solid core for any team in the NHL and giving them a reliable second or third line forward.
He lacks the size, speed and high-end offensive skills to be a top line forward, but he plays almost all of the games of the season and can put up solid assist numbers. Langkow's scoring can be streaky at times, leading to frequent demotions and his being left off of special teams units.
Langkow finished the 2006-2007 season with one of his best totals ever. He had 77 points in 81 games, with 33 goals and 44 assists.
