Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mark Visheau
Hulking defenseman Mark Visheau, who stood 6'6 and weighed 235 pounds in his playing days spent three years of Junior hockey with the London Knights turned pro with the Moncton Hawks, the farm club of the team that drafted him, the Winnipeg Jets.

In his rookie pro season Visheau played 48 games with the Hawks but also appeared in a single contest with the Jets, but was unable to post any points.

After spending his second season with the American Hockey League's Springfield Falcons, Visheau began a tour of the minor leagues in 1995-96 by suiting up for three different clubs that season, two more in the following year and a new club in 1997-98. By then he was property of the Los Angeles Kings and it was them that he would get a real opportunity to show his stuff.

The Kings put Visheau into their lineup for 28 games and as well as providing a major physical presence he also chipped in a goal and three assists. Despite finally getting a chance to play in the big leagues, it was the end of the road for Visheau he left the game following his time in California.
