Andrascik made a name for himself as a tough guy but played only once in the NHL, a playoff game, April 20, 1972, a 3-2 win over Chicago. He got there via Detroit, the team that drafted him in 1968 after he scored 30 goals with Flin Flon. But the Red Wings traded him to New York for Don Luce in 1970, and after two years in the minors he got the call for that playoff game.
The following year, Andrascik was right back in the minors, and after two years it became clear another shot at the NHL was not on the horizon after he was traded to Pittsburgh but the Pens never called him up. So, he signed with the WHA and played with Indianapolis, Michigan-Baltimore, and Cincinnati, but again wound up in the minors by 1976. Two years later, he retired for good.
