Over the course of his 15-year career in professional hockey, Winnipeg native Nick Wasnie wore a dozen different sweaters, five bearing NHL crests. His longest and most notable stretch was from 1929-30 through 1931-32, patrolling the right wing for the Canadiens in that time.

The 5-foot-11, 174-pound forward broke into the NHL with the 1927-28 Chicago Blackhawks, scoring a single goal in 15 appearances. Signed by the Habs as a free agent after spending 1928-29 with the CAHA Newark Bears he rose to the occasion, becoming a valued contributor to the team’s success.

Playing alongside Howie Morenz and Aurele Joliat, the quiet and reserved Wasnie had no trouble keeping up with his flamboyant linemates once the puck was dropped. He potted a dozen regular season goals in 1929-30, adding 11 assists. Come playoff time, he chipped in four points on the way to Montreal’s third Stanley Cup title in the spring of 1930.

A skilled stickhandler with one of the most powerful shots of his era, something he later attributed to a slight curve in his blade, Wasnie slipped to only 11 regular season points in 1930-31 but bounced back in the postseason, lighting the lamp four times and having his name inscribed upon the Stanley Cup a second time when the Canadiens repeated as champions.

The following season would prove to be Wasnie’s last campaign in Montreal. Loaned to the New York Americans for the upcoming season, he went on to play with the Ottawa Senators in 1933-34 and made 13 appearances in a St. Louis Eagles uniform before winding down his playing days with five seasons in the minors.
