Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jergus Baca
Born in Liptovsky, Mikulas, Czechoslovakia on January 4, 1965, defenseman Jergus Baca played two NHL seasons with the Hartford Whalers. Despite being named the Czechoslovakian rookie of the year and being named to the Czechoslovakian First All-Star team in 1989 and 1990, Baca wasn't drafted until the 141st pick in the 1990 Entry Draft.

Though Baca played just ten games in the two seasons he was with the Whalers, his career outside the NHL lasted much longer. He spent time in the International Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals and the American Hockey League's Springfield Indians and played professionally back home in Slovkia as well as suiting up for the Canada Cup, the World Cup, and two World Championships and the Olympics.

Baca's career began a new phase in 1999 when he signed to play hockey in Germany, where he spent the next three seasons with the Revier Lions.
