Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Chernomaz lit up the WHL when he played for the Victoria Cougars, so expectations were high when he became a
fulltime pro.

However, he largely played for the AHL's Maine Mariners when he was in the Devils' system. At the same time, though,
he put up solid seasons with the Mariners, as well as winning the Calder Cup in 1984.

He would get to see a few games while with the Flames, as well, but he was largely in the minors, having played with
the Salt Lake Golden Eagles in the IHL, and two seasons with the St. John's Maple Leafs. All seasons, though, were
good ones, including 1994, where he won the Les Cunningham Trophy for the AHL's MVP.

In 1995, he would move to Germany and play for the Schwenninger Wild Wings for 4 seasons before retiring. He
would then become their head coach after his playing days were done, and had moved around the German League in a
coaching capacity since then.
Entry Draft: 1981 Second Round Pick (26th overall) by the
Colorado Rockies
