|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Deadmarsh had a decent-length career in hockey, largely as a rugged role player by the looks of it. (I'm judging by his
stats; not a lot of points, but he had his fair share of PIMs.)
He would be part of an unusual trade when the Scouts traded him to the Vancouver Blazers... well, if you wanna be
technical, all the Blazers did was buy his rights from them. Seriously, it was not often that a player split the season
between the NHL And the WHA, which was what Deadmarsh did.
The WHA is where Deadmarsh would finish, having shown an offensive game to boot. He would bounce around
frequently, though, because of being on teams that were folding. He retired after the 77-78 season, having finished with
the Cincinnati Stingers.
And of course, we all have seen his second cousin play. (Adam Deadmarsh)
