After two standout seasons with the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL, Todd Warriner was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the first round (4th overall) in 1992. Warriner would spend another season in junior, split between Windsor and Kitchener, before joining Canada’s National Team for most of the 1993-94 season. Warriner would win a Silver medal at the 1994 Olympic Games in Lillehammer and made his professional debut later that year with Quebec’s AHL affiliate in Cornwall.
That summer, Warriner was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs as part of the blockbuster deal that saw Mats Sundin end up in the blue & white and Wendel Clark with the Nordiques. He would spend parts of six seasons with the Leafs before being dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 1999-2000 season. Warriner would spend two seasons in Tampa before being dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes. He would only stay in Phoenix briefly and made stops in Vancouver, Philadelphia & Nashville before moving overseas to play in Finland. Throughout his NHL career, Warriner played in 453 regular season games, scoring 65 goals and adding 89 assists for 154 points.
