Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Tomlak
Forward Mike Tomlak spent parts of four seasons with the Hartford Whalers in the 90s. He was a fine goal scorer who used his 6'3" frame to win face offs and battle for the puck in the corners.

Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Tomlak accumulated 72 goals in three seasons with the OHL's Cornwall Royals. He then spent four years as a scoring star with the UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN ONTARIO MUSTANGS where he amassed 220 career points. Prior to the 1988-89 CIAU season, Tomlak signed with the Whalers. He notched 50 points in 34 games for the Mustangs then made the jump straight to the NHL in 1989-90.

Tomlak was a fine two-way worker on Hartford for two years. In 1991-92 he was reduced to a supporting role and went on to spend several years in the minors before retiring in 1998. His best year was 1993-94 when he scored 44 goals for the AHL's Springfield Indians.
