Tony Ahlin

Tony Ahlin, a 5'11" 175lb left winger who played one game in the NHL with the Chicago Black Hawks, was born less than a year before the legendary goaltender Frankie Brimsek was born in the town of Eveleth, Minnesota. The two very likely spent a lot of time playing with and against each other as youth in Eveleth, and later with the CHL Eveleth Rangers.

While Brimsek went on to become America's first great NHL player, Ahlin was destined for a solid career in the minor leagues. He is best remembered for playing with the AHA Kansas City Greyhounds.
