IIHF Honour Roll
John Mayasich

John Mayasich was born May 22, 1933 in Eveleth, Minnesota, USA. He played in a total of seven IIHF World Championship Tournaments. Mayasich represented his country in 1956, 1958, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1966, and 1969 winning one silver and one gold medal at the Olympic Winter Games and one IIHF bronze medal in 1962. Playing defense in Squaw Valley for the US Olympic Team, his slap shot goal against Don Head in the opening game in the medal round proved to be the winning goal against Canada on the way to Olympic gold. Mayasich was named All-American three times during his collegiate ice hockey career: in 1953, 1954, and 1955. Declining professional ice hockey opportunities, Mayasich devoted his remaining ice hockey career to the amateur Green Bay Bobcats.
