July 7--Ed Staniowski

Ed Staniowski

Selected by St. Louis Blues, round 2 #27 overall in the 1975 NHL Amateur Draft.
Selected by Cleveland Crusaders, round 3 #35 overall in the 1975 WHA Amateur Draft.

Staniowski led the Regina Pats to the 1974 Memorial Cup and was named to the WCJHL first all-star team and voted the Canadian Major Junior player of the year.
Over the next six years Staniowski showed flashes of brilliance but was chiefly a solid back up on an inconsistent defensive team in St. Louis. He also spent time in the minors and shared the Terry Sawchuk trophy with Doug Grant in 1978 for allowing the fewest goals in the CHL.
In July, 1981 Staniowski was sent to the Jets along with Paul MacLean. He won 20 games and helped Winnipeg reach the playoffs but he started battling injuries and consistency. He was traded to the Hartford Whalers in 1983 for fellow back up Mike Veisor and retired in 1985.
After retiring, Staniowski joined the Canadian Forces Primary Reserves. He has worked his way up through the Canadian Air Force and is currently a Lieutenant Colonel. He has deployed for his country numerous times, including as the senior Canadian advisor to the Armed Forces of Sierra Leone
