Right-winger Danny Belisle was born in the town of South Porcupine, Ontario on May 9th, 1937. After a junior career spent with teams in both of the Ontario Hockey Association the Quebec Hockey League, Belisle made the jump to the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers.
In 1960-61, Belisle suited up for four games with the Broadway Blueshirts and scored a pair of goals. Despite his success, he spent the rest of that campaign split between the Kitchener Beavers of the Eastern Pro league and the Vancouver Canucks of the Western Hockey League. This would begin a long, winding road through the minor leagues as Belisle made stops with 14 different teams in seven different leagues.
Despite scoring twenty or more goals eight times, and hitting the 30-goal mark four times during his time in minor pro leagues, Belisle never returned to the NHL level.
Following his final season of professional hockey with the Des Moines Oak Leafs of the International Hockey League, Belisle returned for one more year with the Oak Leafs, serving as their coach for the 1971-72 season.
