Cory Cross
Cory Cross
Defenseman
Number: 4
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 225
Shoots: Left
Born: Jan 3, 1971
Birthplace: Lloydminster, AB, Canada
Hometown: Lloydminster, Alberta
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Pittsburgh for Detroit's fourth-round choice (Alex Grant) in 2007 entry draft on March 8, 2006.
Cory Cross was selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1992 NHL Supplemental Draft. He played three years with the University of Alberta Golden Bears in the CIS, winning a Canadian championship in 1992. During his final year in 1992-93, Cross scored eleven goals and 28 assists for 39 points in 44 games.

At the end of the season, he turned pro with the IHL's Atlanta Knights and played seven games. He made his NHL debut on April 4, 1994 with the Lightning in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. After playing four more games that year, Cross joined Tampa full-time during the shortened 1994-95 season, scoring six points in 43 games. In 1995-96, Cross had 16 points in 75 games as the Lightning advanced to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

Cross remained in Tampa for another two years before being traded with a seventh round pick to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Fredrik Modin. The biggest thrill of Cross' s career was scoring the overtime winning goal against the Ottawa Senators in game three of their series in the 2001 playoffs.

After three seasons with the Maple Leafs, Cross signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers during the 2002-03 season. His stay on Broadway would be short lived as he was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers at the trading deadline in a move to shore up the Edmonton blueline. Cross would remain with the club until January, 2006 before he was acquired by the Pittsburgh Penguins. However, his stay with the Pens' would be short-lived as he was acquired by the Detroit Red Wings at the 2006 NHL trading deadline.

Cross was signed as a free agent by Hamburg of the German League in the summer of 2006.

On the international stage, Cross is a three-time member of Canada's World Championship team, representing his homeland at the 1997, 1998 and 2003 tourneys.
