Wade Redden was one of the top Defenseman in the best league on earth for the better part of the 2000’s.
He was drafted 2nd overall to the New York Islanders before getting traded to the Ottawa Senators where he spent the majority of his career.
Wade was the assistant captain on a team that made it to the Stanley Cup finals and had one of the most decorated careers out of anyone over the span of a decade.
Wade was 2 time NHL All-Star, 2 time World Junior Championship gold medalist, 1 time World Cup gold medalist, 1 time World Championship silver medalist, 1 time Western Hockey League champion and a former Team Canada Olympian.
However, this interview gets very interesting as Wade opens up about what happened towards the end of his career and how he found his way to the minor leagues, even after such a successful 10 years in the National Hockey League.
This goes to show that no matter who you were in the past, no spot is guaranteed..
