Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Eddie Mazur
Eddie Mazur was a versatile player who spent parts of six seasons in the NHL during the 1950s. He was a fine puck handler who could function effectively at left-wing as well as defence.

The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba played junior with the local Monarchs before turning pro with the USHL's Dallas Texans in 1948-49. He then spent most of the next four seasons in the minors but was called up three times to help the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs. Mazur gained plenty of big game experience while helping the Habs reach the finals twice and claim the Stanley Cup in 1953. During the early '50s he attained his greatest individual success in the PCHL with the Victoria Cougars where he was selected to the second all-star team twice.

The hard-working forward was a regular in 1953-54 playing on a line with Jean Beliveau and Bernie Geoffrion. He played eleven post-season games when Montreal lost in the Stanley Cup finals to the Detroit Red Wings. The next year, Mazur split his playing time between the NHL and the Montreal Royals of the Quebec League. After scoring 34 goals for the WHL's Winnipeg Warriors in 1955-56, he was acquired by the Chicago Black Hawks.

Mazur played 15 games for the Hawks in 1956-57 before spending eight years in the minors. During the late '50s he was a top scorer for the AHL's Rochester Americans and was a two-time selection to the league's second all-star team. He spent the 1964-65 season with the WHL's Victoria Maple Leafs and played a year of senior hockey with the Grand Forks Flyers before retiring.
