Todd Douglas Ross Harvey (born February 17, 1975) [1] is a Canadian former professional ice hockey forward and current director of amateur scouting for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL). During his playing career, he played for the Dallas Stars, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, and Edmonton Oilers. He was selected in the first round (9th overall) of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Stars, following a successful junior career in which he represented Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships.



Harvey was born in Hamilton, Ontario and grew up in the small town of Sheffield. He played minor hockey for the Beverly Merchants of the OMHA before playing Jr.B. hockey at age 14 for the Cambridge Winterhawks. He spent two seasons playing Jr.B. in the OHA before being selected 1st overall in the 1991 OHL Priority Selection by the Detroit Jr. Red Wings of the OHL.

Although a first-round NHL selection, Harvey was never able to live up to the offensive expectations that accompanied his high draft position. His intense playing style, combined with a smallish frame, led to numerous injuries over a ten-year NHL career, and after three seasons in Dallas and a brief stint with the New York Rangers, Harvey was dealt to the San Jose Sharks. In his fifth season with the Sharks, Harvey saw his stock fall and he was ultimately demoted to the AHL's Cleveland Barons. Following the 2003-04 season, the Sharks elected not to resign Harvey and he was allowed to leave as a free agent.

Harvey signed as a free agent with the Edmonton Oilers just prior to the 2004–05 NHL lockout. He was part of Edmonton's cinderella run to the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, where the Oilers lost in game 7 to the Carolina Hurricanes. Harvey contributed 1 goal and 1 assist during the Oilers improbable playoff run. At season's end, Harvey's contract was bought out by the Oilers and his NHL career came to an end.

After his NHL career had ended, Harvey joined the Dundas Real McCoys of the Ontario Hockey Association.

Coaching & scouting

After retiring as a player, Harvey served as an assistant coach for the OHL's Guelph Storm from 2012 to 2017, and was part of the team's 2013-14 OHL Championship. On July 24, 2017, the Storm announced that Harvey was leaving the OHL team to accept a position as an amateur scout with an unnamed NHL organization. [2] It was later confirmed that he became a scout for the Vancouver Canucks. [3] During the 2020 NHL off-season, Harvey was promoted to serve as the Canucks' director of amateur scouting, beginning with the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. [4]
