Left-winger Carl Mokosak was a role player with five different NHL teams in the 1980s. Most of his success came as a top scorer in junior and the minor leagues.
Born in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Mokosak played in the MJHL with the Brandon Bobcats before joining the WHL's Wheat Kings. He signed as a free agent with the Calgary Flames in July 1981 before returning to junior and scored 107 points. The young forward scored seven goals in 41 games as a rookie in 1982-83.
In June 1983, Mokosak was traded to the L.A. Kings but spent the entire 1983-84 season in the AHL. He played 30 games for L.A. the next season but was soon dropped in favour of other players. Mokosak played briefly with the Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Boston Bruins then retired in 1991 after spending two full years in the IHL.
