Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
At his best, Saleski was a fine defensive forward that was also able to contribute something offensively; he had scored
20+ goals with the Flyers in 3 seasons.

After the trade to the Rockies, though, his career took a turn south. Largely because he was feuding with Don Cherry.
(Man, Cherry was just feuding with everybody, wasn't he?) Unlike Mike McEwen, though, Saleski ended up the loser
of that one, as he finished the season with Fort Worth. He retired after the season was over.

He already had things in place for post-hockey life. While he was still playing, he did get a Realtor's license. The funny
thing is he didn't get into real estate. He got into the sports and entertainment business. (NOT WWE, by the way.)
Ultimately, he would create Business Edge Development, which helped train front line staff and managers in order to
improve and sustain financial growth.
Entry Draft: 1969 Sixth Round Pick (64th overall) by the
