Mike Veisor - Goaltender



Mike Veisor was a third round selection (45th overall) of the Chicago Black Hawks in the 1972 NHL Draft. He spent his first pro season with the Dallas Black Hawks of the Central Hockey League in 1972-73. He successfully made Chicago's roster the following season as a backup to workhorse Tony Esposito. Veisor played in 10 games in his rookie season, posting a 2.23 goals against average with a shutout. Veisor split the following year between Dallas and Chicago, appearing in 9 games for the NHL club with a 4.70 GAA. He spent the entire 1975-76 campaign with the farm club in Dallas as the Black Hawks opted to use former Rangers veteran Gilles Villemure in relief of Esposito. 1976-77 saw Veisor play 3 games with the big club and post a 4.33 GAA. In 1977-78, Veisor once again became his Esposito's primary backup with Villemure's departure. He would see action in 40 games over the three seasons from 1977-78 to 1979-80 with the Black Hawks.

In 1980-81, Veisor would join the Hartford Whalers and spend the next three and a half seasons with the club. His first year with the Whalers was his busiest in the pros as he played in 29 games with a 4.46 GAA and a shutout. This white heavy mesh Sandow was worn by Veisor during the 1982-83 season for the now defunct club. This jersey features lighter wear, with a few random puck marks showing. Midway through the 1983-84 season, the Whalers traded Veisor the the Winnipeg Jets for goaltender Ed Stanioski. Veisor would play in 8 games for the Jets that year to close out his time in professional hockey. Over his career, Veisor played in 139 NHL games, posted 5 shutouts and a 4.09 goals against average.
