Todd Harvey was selected in the first round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, 9th overall, by the Dallas Stars, following a successful junior career, which included being the captain of the Canadian team at the World Junior Hockey Championships. His intense style of hockey and smallish frame lead to numerous injuries, and after three seasons in Dallas, and a brief stint with the New York Rangers, Harvey was dealt to the San Jose Sharks, where he played a key role as a checking forward and an agitator. Harvey signed with the Edmonton Oilers just prior to the NHL lockout and was part of the cinderella Edmonton Oiler team that made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals. However, the Oilers lost in game 7 of the finals to the Carolina Hurricanes. Harvey had 1 goal and 1 assist in the 2006 Playoffs.
