Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Throughout his career, Corkum was a journeyman and a reliable defensive forward who was familiar with playoff
hockey... albeit until he became a Devil, not June playoff hockey.

So him being what proved to be a rental was really no surprise.

After he left the Devils, he only played one more season in the NHL, and it was split between Atlanta and Buffalo.

He took to coaching in 2004, having moved around in the Eastern Junior Hockey League for most of the next four
seasons. In 2008, though, he became an assistant coach at his alma mater, the University of Maine. During the 12-13
season with the Black Bears, he became the head coach to finish the season.

After that season, he joined the New York Islanders in a player development role. He would become an assistant coach
there in 2014, and remains there today.
Entry Draft: 1986 Third Round Pick (47th overall) by the
