Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Natyshak
Right-winger Mike Natyshak played four games with the Quebec Nordiques in 1987-88. He could check and play the body but his offensive tools were too limited for any long term success in the NHL.

Born in Belle River, Ontario, Natyshak played four years at Bowling Green University where he was a solid grinder but accounted for only 12 goals in four years. In 1986 he was Quebec's first choice, 23rd overall, in the Supplemental Draft. In 1987-88 he was a hard worker for the AHL's Fredericton Express and was recalled by the Nords for four games. The next season he suited up for the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL before retiring.
