Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Sandy Moger
At 17, Sandy Moger was playing midget hockey with the Vernon Lakers of the BCJHL before joining the Yorkton Terriers of the Saskatchewan Junior League the following year where he proved that he had a scoring touch, notching 80 points in 60 games.

Moger was almost 20 and not drafted by any NHL team, which made the decision to enroll in college all that much more easier. He chose Lake Superior State and had a steady NCAA career and was named to the CCHA Second All-Star Team in 1992.

During his time in the NCAA, NHL scouts took notice of Moger's size and strength. He was selected in the NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks, 176th overall in the ninth round in 1989.

Moger signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins in the summer of 1994 and played most of the year with the team's minor-league affiliate in Providence although he was used in 18 games with Boston. In 1995-96 he suited up for 80 games with the Bruins, scoring 15 goals and 29 points. Just as his pro game was rounding in to shape, Moger suffered a serious elbow injury against Buffalo in December, 1996 and was forced to the sidelines for the rest of the year.

In 1988 he was part of a trade to Los Angeles which saw the Kings also obtain Jozef Stumpel while the Bruins received Dmitri Khristich and goalie Byron Dafoe. Moger had a regular role with the Kings for two years before signing as a free agent with the Houston Aeros of the now-defunct IHL in September, 1999. He remained with the Aeros for two years before the league folded in 2001.
