Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mark Osiecki
Defenceman Mark Osiecki played 93 NHL games with four different teams in the early 90s. He was an efficient player in his own zone who could move the puck up to his forwards effectively.

The native of St. Paul, Minnesota played four years at the University of Wisconsin. He was chosen 187th overall by the Calgary Flames at the 1987 Entry Draft and was named to the NCAA Championship all-tournament team after helping the Badgers win the national title in 1990.

Osiecki was solid during his first year as a pro with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles of the IHL in 1990-91. He dressed for 50 games on the strong Flames in 1991-92 and represented the US when they finished seventh at the World Championships. He was traded to the Ottawa Senators in June, 1992 and played 34 games for the weak expansion club. That same year he also skated briefly for the Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota North Stars. Osiecki retired in 1995 after playing two years with three different IHL clubs.
