Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ed Dyck
Goaltender Ed Dyck caught the attention of the Vancouver Canucks scouts when he led the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League in games played during the 1969-70 season. Born on October 29, 1950 in Warman, Saskatchewan, Dyck then rewarded their faith by posting a league leading 2.53 goals-against average the following season.

Dyck had a busy first year as a professional player, spending time with the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League, the Seattle Totems of the Western Hockey League, as well as making his NHL debut with the Canucks. He played 12 games with Vancouver and managed to register his first NHL victory.

He spent the next two seasons splitting his time between the Canucks and the Totems. However, after three seasons in the Vancouver organization, Dyck chose to jump to the rival World Hockey Association for the 1974-75 season.

Dyck, who was originally drafted into the WHA by Cleveland in 1972, joined the Indianapolis Racers, who had acquired his rights via trade in April of 1974. He played 32 games for the Racers but struggled with a 3-21-3 record.

When the Racers signed Swedish player Leif Holmqvist as a free agent in June 1974, they awarded Dyck as compensation to Holmqvist's former club, HC Boden. Dyck travelled overseas and spent his final season of professional hockey playing in Sweden.
