Playing career

Winchester spent two seasons with the U.S. National Team Development Program, then moved to his hometown University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he played for four seasons. At six feet, five inches tall and 228 pounds, was the largest player the Oilers had drafted since the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. In December 2000, Winchester participated in the World Junior Hockey Championship with the United States, finishing in fourth position.

Winchester made his professional debut in the 2003–04 American Hockey League season, playing for Edmonton's farm affiliate, the Toronto Roadrunners. He moved with the team to Edmonton during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, where he tied for the team lead in goals and was six points behind Tony Salmelainen and Raffi Torres for the team scoring lead. Winchester split 2005–06 between the Oilers and the Hamilton Bulldogs, going scoreless during the NHL regular season but scoring the game-winning goal in his playoff debut, the second game of a series with the number one seeded Detroit Red Wings. His goal gave the eighth seeded Oilers their first win in the series on the road. The Oilers went on to lose to the Carolina Hurricanes in seven games of the Stanley Cup final, with Winchester spending most of the latter games as a healthy scratch.

On June 26, 2007, the Oilers declined to make Winchester a qualifying offer, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent as of July 1, and on the 6th, he signed with the Dallas Stars. After playing in 41 games for Dallas in 2007-08, Winchester signed with the St. Louis Blues on July 10, 2008.[1]

He was recalled from the Blues' Peoria Rivermen (AHL) affiliate on November 20, 2008.[2]
