2010 NHL Draft sit down with Yogan
Born and raised in South Florida, Andrew Yogan grew up watching the Florida Panthers. After a preseason trade from the New York Rangers, Yogan came full circle in becoming a part of his hometown organization.
A former Jr. Panther, Yogan spent his childhood playing at the Panthers IceDen before making the jump to the OHL, playing for the Windsor Spitfires and Erie Otters, recording 108 points (55-53-108) in 174 games.
Yogan played a game for the San Antonio Rampage to start the season before heading to Cincinnati. Playing in four games for the Cyclones this season, Yogan has posted seven points (2-5-7). His early success in the ECHL earned him a call-up to San Antonio where he scored in his first game back for the Rampage.
Yogan has played 92 games in the AHL, recording 33 points (15-18-33) during his professional career. The career of the young 22-year old forward is an example of the growth of hockey in South Florida, being one of the first of the next wave of hockey players from the Sunshine State.
