Left-winger Bernie Saunders played a few games for the Quebec Nordiques in the early 80s. He was a decent scorer in college and the minors but was unable to gain a permanent place in the NHL.
Born in Montreal, Saunders spent three years at Western Michigan University where he was named to the CCHA second all-star team in 1978. In May, 1979 he signed with Quebec and was a reliable farm hand for them while being recalled for ten NHL games. He retired early in the 1983-84 season with his best performance being a 38-goal effort for the IHL's Kalamazoo Wings in 1991-92.
