Wacey Rabbit (born November 6, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre playing for the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Rabbit played major junior in the Western Hockey League (WHL). During his draft year in 2004–05, he recorded 67 points and was then selected in the 5th round, 154th overall, by the Boston Bruins in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Rabbit turned pro in 2006–07 season with Boston's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins. However, after he was demoted to the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) in January, Vancouver Giants general manager Scott Bonner requested from the Boston Bruins that they send Rabbit back down to the juniors. Rabbit was then traded from the Saskatoon Blades for Kenton Dulle and a second-round pick in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft.[1]

Returning to the WHL, Rabbit helped the 2007 Memorial Cup hosts, the Vancouver Giants, to the WHL Finals against the Medicine Hat Tigers with 20 points in 22 games, but they were defeated in seven games. In the subsequent Memorial Cup, the Giants met the Tigers again in the final game and won the CHL title.

In 2007–08, Rabbit returned to Providence and recorded 26 points in 66 games. The following season, he improved to 34 points in 74 games. In the 2009 off-season after the Bruins declined to extend an contract to Wacey, he was signed on by the Nashville Predators AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals on October 2, 2009. In the 2009–10 season, Rabbit appeared in 76 games with the Admirals, however failed to establish himself and posted a professional career low 18 points.

Without an NHL offer, Rabbit left North America and secured a try-out as a free agent with Croatian team KHL Medveščak of the Erste Bank Hockey League on August 30, 2010.[2] After only a week on trial on September 7, 2010, Rabbit was signed by Medveščak to a one-year contract with an optional second year[3]
