Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jack Brownschidle
Defenceman Jack Brownschidle was a solid playmaker who aided his team's transition game and power play. His puck handling efficiency and mobility served him well in a career that spanned nine seasons.

Born in Buffalo, New York, Brownschidle played four years of college hockey at Notre Dame where he made the WCHA first all-star team in 1976 and 1977. He also skated briefly with the U.S. national team and represented his country at the 1975 World Championships.

Drafted 99th overall by the St. Louis Blues in 1975, the talented blueliner was solid in 40 games as a rookie in 1977-78. Beginning in 1978-79, he was a key member of the Blues' defence corps and reached double figures in goals twice. In 1980-81, Brownschidle's stellar play helped the Blues finish second in the NHL's overall standings with 107 points. Much of his time was spent quarterbacking the power play while providing solid defensive zone coverage.

Late in the 1983-84 season, the Blues opted to make changes and placed Brownschidle on waivers. He was claimed by the Hartford Whalers and was a part-time player there until 1985-86. Brownschidle announced his retirement in 1987 after playing a year in the AHL with the Rochester Americans.
