Tim Brent (born March 10, 1984) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Brent grew up in the Cambridge, Ontario area playing minor hockey for the Hespeler Shamrocks of the OMHA and the Cambridge Hawks of the Alliance Pavilion League.

At age 15, Brent signed with the Cambridge Winterhawks Jr.B. team of the OHA Midwestern Ontario Hockey League in the 1999-2000 season. After a very successful Jr.B. season, Brent was the 2nd overall selection of the OHL's Toronto St. Michael's Majors in the 2000 OHL Priority Selection.

Brent began his major junior career on the Toronto St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in the 2000–01 season. He played on the team for four seasons, until 2003–04. During that time, he was drafted twice, both times by Anaheim. He was first drafted 37th overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, but was re-entered into the draft two years later after not signing with Anaheim. In the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, he was selected 75th overall, again by the Ducks.

In the 2004–05 season, he started his professional career with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks, and had a solid season. The next season, he played on the Portland Pirates, the Ducks' new minor league affiliate, and improved his play from the previous year. He began his 2006–07 season with Portland, but was recalled to the Stanley Cup-winning Ducks and scored his first NHL goal February 20 against the Vancouver Canucks.

On June 23, 2007, the Anaheim Ducks traded Brent to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for centre Stephen Dixon.[1] On July 17, 2008, Brent was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Danny Richmond.[2] On July 6, 2009, Brent signed a one-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.[3]

During his first preseason game of the 2009-2010 season, Brent tore his pectoral muscle - requiring surgery that would see him miss 4 months of action. After recovering, Brent returned to play with the Toronto Marlies, recording 28 points in 33 games. This exceptional play saw him called up to make his debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs for the final game of the season (April 10, 2010) versus the Montreal Canadiens.

The 2010-2011 season was a breakout one for Brent. A strong training camp with Toronto saw Brent dress for the Maple Leafs in the season opener on October 7, 2010 versus the Montreal Canadiens. Brent immediately made an impact, scoring the first goal of the game at 6:42 of the first period. Brent went on to suit up for 79 games this season, solidifying his position as an NHL player.

Brent signed a two-year contract with the Carolina Hurricanes on July 1, 2011.
