Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gordie Fashoway
Left-winger Gordie Fashoway played 13 games for the Chicago Black Hawks in 1950-51. He spent the bulk of his career as a minor pro star in the WHL where he was one of the most prolific scorers in the history of that league.

Born in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Fashoway played junior with the Winnipeg Monarchs of the MJHL. Just after World War II he spent a year in the United Kingdom with the Harringay Racers where he scored 63 goals in 36 games. He returned to North America with the PCHL's New Westminster Royals before switching to the USHL"s Kansas City Pla-Mors. In 1949-50 he led the USHL with 52 goals and was voted on to the league's first all-star team.

Fashoway looked solid during his brief stay in the NHL with three goals in 13 games but was unable to make a permenent place for himself there. Before the end of the season he returned to New Westminster and went to enjoy nine rewarding seasons. He led the WHL in goals twice but never won a league title. A championship finally came his way in 1960-61 when Fashoway scored 42 goals in the regular season and led all WHL players with 10 playoff assists while helping the Portland Buckaroos to the title.He retired early in 1963 and remained in Portland where he later coached the junior Winter Hawks.
