Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Lubomir Vaic
Lubomir Vaic, a late draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks in 1996, already had three World Junior Championship appearances to his credit when he headed to North America to pursue an NHL career. Vaic joined Vancouver's farm club in Syracuse in 1997 but managed to play a few NHL games that season as well.

The Canucks brought the diminutive Vaic up for a five game trial and he responded with a goal and an a assist in that time. The 1998-99 season was spent back home in his hometown of Spisska, Nova Ves in Slovakia, but he was back in Syracuse in 1999. Vaic improved his American Hockey League totals by 15 points from his rookie season and earned another look from the Canucks.

This time Vancouver put him into four games but this time the center was unable to produce any points.

Once again Vaic returned to Europe, however this time in landed in Germany and signed on with the Berlin Polar Bears. Vaic was a huge disappointment with 'Bears managing just 1 goal and 7 points in 26 games.
