Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Frank Beisler
Frank Beisler played just two NHL games in his hockey career, both with the New York Americans. Born on October 18th, 1913 in New Haven, Connecticut, he began his career with the Eastern Hockey League's Hershey Bears in 1933. The big defenseman was an immediate success a named to the EHL's First All-Star team after his rookie campaign.

The next two years Beisler spent with the Canadian-American Hockey League and led to his NHL debut in 1936-37. After one game, Beisler was returned to the New Haven Eagles of the American Hockey League. He returned to the NHL, and to the Americans, for his second and final NHL game during the 1939-40 season. Though he never registered a point in the NHL, Beisler found great success in minors. He was named to the Second All-Star Team in 1941, and a First All-Star Team selection the following two seasons.

Beisler missed the 1944-45 season while he served in the United States military, but he returned to his professional hockey career with the AHL's Buffalo Bisons for four games in the 1945-46 season.

The following season, Beisler served as the coach of the Bisons, and his career went full-circle when he went back to the league he began his career with, the EHL, and took the coaching reigns of the Baltimore Clippers.
