Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andre Faust
Centre Andre Faust played 47 games for the Philadelphia Flyers in the early 1990s. Apart from his short-lived NHL tenure, he was a solid two-way pivot in college and the minor leagues.

The native of Joliette, Quebec played four years at Princeton University. He was solid on face-offs and created scoring chances for his teammates on a regular basis. After scoring 39 points in 27 games as a freshman, he was claimed 173rd overall by the New Jersey Devils at the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. Faust was named to the ECAC second all-star team in 1990 and 1992.

The young pivot never came to terms with the Devils and ended up signing with the Philadelphia Flyers on the eve of the 1992-93 season. He played 10 games in Philly but spent most of the season fitting in well with the AHL's Hershey Bears. After scoring 13 pointsb in 37 games in 1993-94, Faust was sent back to Hershey the next year.

Following a trade to the Winnipeg Jets, he played the 1995-96 season with the AHL's Springfield Falcons. With his North American career stuck in neutral, Faust sought a new challenge in Europe. He played two seasons with the Augsburg Panthers in Germany accumulating 73 points in 87 games before retiring in 1998.
