Christopher Ryan Armstrong (born June 26, 1975) is a retired professional ice hockey defenceman who most recently played for the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League. Armstrong was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, but grew up in Whitewood, Saskatchewan.

Playing career[edit]

Chris Armstrong was drafted by the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft in the third round, 57th overall. He never played a game for the Panthers, though. The Nashville Predators claimed him in the 1998 NHL Expansion Draft and then in 1999 he was signed as a free agent by the San Jose Sharks.

The Minnesota Wild then claimed him in the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft. After spells in the IHL, and AHL, he finally made the jump to the NHL for three games in the 2000–01 season with the Wild. His tenure as a Wild did not last long, though, as the New York Islanders signed him as a free agent in 2001.

He did not play his next NHL game until after he was signed as a free agent by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 2003. He played four games for the Ducks in the 2003–04 season. In seven NHL games, he has no goals, one assist, one point, and no penalty minutes.

Returning to America for the 2009–10 season, Armstrong eventually signed as a free agent with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL on December 5, 2009.[1]

Family[edit]

Chris Armstrong is the first cousin of Canadian Model and Television Personality Ron Wear of Vancouver Television's VTV and The Change - Fab to FIT! (c). Wear is also a former Mister World Canada and Mister International Canada.
