Derek Joslin truly only played for two NHL teams. The San Jose Sharks who drafted him in the 5th round as the 149th pick and the Carolina Hurricanes who traded for him in exchange for future considerations. His career is mired in healthy scratches, waivers, lack of qualifying offers as a restricted free agent, and arbitrations.
As far as his actual career numbers go, the defender has played 116 games across five years in the NHL scoring four goals and earning a total of 16 points. More than half of those points came in his short tenure with the Carolina Hurricanes who called him up and played him for a total of 61 games in the two years he played with them from 2010-2012.
After being placed on unconditional waivers and bought out by the Carolina Hurricanes he signed a one year with the Vancouver Canucks right before the 2012-2013 NHL Lockout. He was assigned to the Chicago Wolves and eventually the Worcester Sharks before being called up to play two games with the Canucks.
After failing to receive a qualified offer from the Canucks, Joslin moved to the European leagues where he has had a resurgent career and continues to play today.
For many Carolina Hurricanes fans, Derek Joslin is not a name they immediately recognize and remember as a part of the team at one point. But he is still part of a small group of hockey players of color to have ever played for the team.
