NHL Alumni Interview with Craig Muni

The path to the NHL is different for every NHL Alumni member. For some, the team that drafts them have an immediate need and they step right into the lineup. For others, it takes time in the minors to either hone their skills or prove their potential to the organization. NHL Alumni member Craig Muni knew that he had the skills and talent to play in the world’s greatest league; he just needed the opportunity to prove it.

For the Toronto native, being selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round (25th overall) of the 1980 NHL entry draft was a dream come true, but it took some time for Craig to break into the league. Staying positive was the key; he knew that in many cases, it was being in the right place at the right time, as well as having someone in the organization that believes in your abilities. So close to the NHL and yet so far, his hard work and dedication to the game would certainly pay off.
