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.
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.
