Drafted 3rd overall by the Kingston Canadians in the 1984 OHL draft, Herb played a season and a half with Kingston where he was Rookie of the Year in 1984-85. He was drafted 37th overall by St. Louis of the NHL in 1985 where he went on to play 6 years, scoring his first NHL goal in Toronto during the 1986 playoffs at the age of 18. He played 10 playoff games that year, including 7 in the Stanley Cup Semi-Finals.

Slated to play for Team Canada at the World Juniors in both 1985 & 86, Herb was unable to participate due to an injury in 1985 and a full time commitment to the NHL in ’86 as a 19 year old. Throughout his career he established himself as a hard-working winger. He was traded to the Quebec Nordiques in ’91 where he played for two years, and then to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Herb saw his final NHL action with the Ottawa Senators in 1993-94.

Herb’s father “Rags,” played in the 1950′s with Chicago and Detroit. In all, the younger Raglan played 13 pro seasons, 9 in the NHL and 4 in the minors, making stops in Halifax, Atlanta, Kalamazoo, Texas and Brantford where he retired in 1997-98.
