Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brent Meeke
Defenceman Brent Meeke was a decent playmaker who spent parts of five seasons with the California Golden Seals/Cleveland Barons franchise. He enjoyed most of his success as a pro in the minor leagues and Europe.

The Toronto native was selected 118th overall by the Seals after a solid three year junior career with the Niagara Falls Flyers of the OHA. He spent his first for pro seasons in the minors while receiving an occasional recall to the parent club. His best years came with the CHL's Salt Lake Golden Eagles where he was named to the league's second all-star team in 1975 and 1976.

Meeke played 49 games for the team when it relocated to Cleveland in 1976-77. He scored 21 games in 49 games but was forced to sit out the next year due to injuries. Meeke chose to resume his career with the ERC Mannheim club of Germany in 1978-79. After playing three years there he retired in 1981.
