Wayne Crawford Podcast Interview – Episode S5E06
Wayne Crawford is today’s podcast guest.
Toronto born Wayne was selected in the 6th round, 109th overall, by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1980 NHL draft. He then spent most of his time in the AHL and IHL until a friend suggested he try the UK.
His UK adventure lasted for 13 seasons. During this time he iced for the Peterborough Pirates, Whitley Warriors, Telford Tigers, Swindon Wildcats, Bracknell Bees and Guildford Flames.
In this episode Wayne talks of:
- How he got the nickname Reggie.
- Being drafted by the Detroit Red Wings.
- How he almost played his first and only NHL game.
- How he got into big trouble by trying to high five an ice skating Russian monkey.
- How an altercation with a Fife Flyers fan had the Fife Police knocking on the locker room door.
All this and much, much more coming up in this episode.

More importantly I know you love hearing them too.
We all love listening to those often hidden stories from inside the game, the stories that we, as fans, never get to hear.
Above all it really gives me a buzz every time I upload a brand new Podcast, knowing that you’ll remember and reminisce about those memories from your hockey heroes of the past.
