Trevor Daley was drafted 43rd overall in the second round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars. The Toronto, Ontario native spent four years (1999-2003) in the OHL with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, where he finished with 188 points and 348 penalty minutes in 216 games. He signed a three-year contract with the Dallas Stars in October 2002, but didn’t make his NHL debut until the following season on October 25, 2003 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He recorded his first NHL goal during a power play on December 10th against the Phoenix Coyotes. He totaled 6 points in 27 games with the Stars and spent the remainder of the season with their AHL team, the Utah Grizzlies. He spent the 2004-05 NHL lockout season with the Hamilton Bulldogs, where he racked up 109 penalty minutes in 78 games. He played his first full NHL season in 2005-06 with 81 games and also played for Team Canada at the 2006 World Championships, where they finished in 4th place. He then re-signed with Dallas to a two-year contract in August 2006. He played his only 82 game season in 2007-08, where he tallied a career-high 19 assists. He marked one goal in 18 post-season games before Dallas was eliminated in the Western Conference finals by the Detroit Red Wings, who went on to win the Stanley Cup. He re-signed with the Stars to a three-year contract and played in 75 games during the 2008-09 season, where he led his team’s defensemen with 7 goals and set new career-highs in goals and points (25). Daley is a hard working defenseman with good skating and puck handling skills. However, at 5’11 and around 205 pounds, he’s considered a small player who could make better decisions in the defensive zone.
