From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniel Frawley (born 2 June 1962 in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario). During his junior hockey years, Frawley played for the Sudbury Wolves of the OHA and the Cornwall Royals of the QMJHL, before being drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks, 204th overall in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. Frawley spent most of the next two years playing in the AHL. He was a right winger


NHL career

He played with the Blackhawks during the 1984–85 season (his NHL rookie season). On the 7 October 1985, Frawley was picked up off waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins, the team he'd spent the next four years (the rest of his NHL career) with. His apparent leadership on the Penguins, was recognized with his appointment as captain in October 1987, a role he would hand over to Mario Lemieux two months later, because of an injury that was keeping him out of the lineup.

Return to the minors

In 1989 Frawley returned to the AHL, retiring in 1993. However he came out of retirement in 1995 and played two more years, with the Rochester Americans of the AHL, winning the 1996 Calder Cup. He retired from professional hockey a second time in 1998, after the 1997–98 season.

Amerks Hall Of Fame

In 2003 Frawley was selected to the Rochester Americans hall of fame. His contributions as a long time player, and his tireless work ethic earned him this honor.
