Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bruce Affleck
Although he had been drafted by California in 1974, Affleck's rights were acquired by St. Louis, and it was in 1974-75 that he began his NHL career in a city that would become his home for many years after. His was not a spectacular game, though, and after less than six years he was in the minors to stay, the exception being one game for the Islanders during the '83-'84 season.

Affleck played two years in Switzerland and then returned to the Islanders for one game, finishing the 1983-84 season with Indianapolis of the CHL where he had played parts of the previous three years. After retiring, he returned to St. Louis and joined the team's front office.
