1954-55 Red Wings: Ed Zeniuk

THE ED ZENIUK FILE:

Born: March 8, 1933; Died: April 14, 1996

Position: Defense

NHL games played: 2 (both with Red Wings)

1954-55 stats (Detroit): 2 GP; G: 0; A: 0; PIM: 0

CAREER: GP: 2; G: 0; A: 0; PIM: 0

If there ever was a player who personified the term “footnote,” it was Ed Zeniuk.

Zeniuk was last on the 1954-55 Red Wings roster alphabetically, last in games played and the only two NHL games he played in, were played in the ’54-55 season.

That’s it for Ed Zeniuk.

Zeniuk, a native of Saskatchewan, filled in for two games when the Red Wings got caught in an injury pinch. He didn’t register a point or any penalty minutes.

Again, footnote.

Zeniuk played four seasons (1951-55) for the Red Wings’ minor league affiliate in Edmonton, logging 188 games. Zeniuk’s pro career ended in 1956 with the Quebec Aces of the Quebec Hockey League.
