Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Chernoff
After three years with the Moose Jaw Canucks, Mike Chernoff, born May 13, 1946 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, turned pro with the St. Louis Braves of the Central Hockey League. A left winger, he signed with the Minnesota North Stars as a free agent in October 1968 and suited up for them that season.

Chernoff played just a single game with Minnesota and was unable to register a point. His one-game trial with the North Stars ended up being his only NHL action, but Chernoff continued his pro career spending his next season in the CHL, then three more years in the American Hockey League before jumping to the World Hockey Association for the 1973-74 campaign.

Chernoff played 36 games with the Vancouver Blazers but also spent four games with the Roanoke Rebels of the East Coast League. The next year, he got into just three games with the Blazers but then began a free-fall through minor pro playing 20 games with the Tulsa Oilers of the CHL then ending the year with the Johnstown Jets of the North American Hockey League before hanging up his skates.
