The Hartford Wolfpack have signed David LeNeveu to a standard player contract.

LeNeveu was selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2nd round (46th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. At the 2007–08 trade deadline, the Coyotes traded LeNeveu, along with forwards Fredrik Sjostrom and Josh Gratton, to the New York Rangers in exchange for Marcel Hossa and goaltender Al Montoya. He was then signed to a one-year contract by the Ducks during the 2008 NHL free agency period.

LeNeveu failed to play a game with the Ducks and served the year with affiliate, the Iowa Chops, for the 2008–09 season before leaving for Europe to signed initially on a try-out with EC Red Bull Salzburg on August 10, 2009. After completing a one-month trial period, David’s tenure to the end of the season was confirmed by Red bull Salzburg on September 8, 2009. After helping Salzburg capture the Austrian Championship, on July 7, 2010, LeNeveu signed a one-year, two-way deal to return to North America with the Columbus Blue Jackets. On August 12, 2011, LeNeveu signed a contract with the Oklahoma City Barons. He recorded a career best 2.24 goals against average in 34 games during the 2011–12 season for the Barons.

This is the second time LeNeveu has played with the Wolfpack. Back in 2007-2008, the Fernie, BC native recorded a 8-3-2 record with a 1.83 GAA and a .924 SP in a short, but impressive stint with the club.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
