Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Tony Horacek
Big Tony Horacek was a 7th-round selection of the Philadelphia Flyers, 147th overall, in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. Horacek was a four-year veteran of major junior hockey, starting with the Kelowna Wings in 1984-85, when he suited up for 64 games, scoring 27 points. He then played three years with the Spokane Chiefs and the Kamloops Blazer as a 20-year-old in 1987-88. His first professional game was with the AHL's Hershey Bears in 1986-87, when he played a single game.

It was not until the 1989-90 season that Horacek got his first chance at playing in an NHL game, when he played 48 games with the Flyers, scoring five goals and ten points, with 117 minutes in penalties. The following two seasons he played in 34 games each year but saw limited ice time as the team's fourth-line winger. Midway through the 1991-92 season, Horacek was sent to the Chicago Blackhawks where he played 12 games. Most of the next three years were spent in the IHL with the Indianapolis Ice although Horacek was inserted into the Hawks' lineup for seven games in 1993-94 and another 19 games in 1994-95. He continued to play pro hockey in the minors for another three years, until retiring as a member of IHL's Utah Grizzlies following the 1997-98 campaign.
