Quietly Pete Stemkowski had a solid NHL career that lasted 14 years.
A useful and aggressive forward
, "Stemmer" always took a back seat of attention wherever he played.
played six strong seasons in New York. Despite 3 20+ goal seasons as a Ranger and some fine team play,
Stemkowski never again sipped champagne from Lord Stanley's Cup. The Rangers came oh so close to the Stanley Cup three times, however it was not meant to be.
By this time, he was regarded as
one of the better face-off men in the game
, and was one of the up-and-coming players on a team that featured veteran legends like Howe and Delvecchio
Pete Stemkowski, who played center, is also remembered as
one of the top faceoff players of the NHL
Stemkowski was also adept at verbally skewering opposing centers, a distinct advantage when he lined up for a faceoff.
"Believe me, that stuff worked," Stemkowski recalled years later. "It's not that hard to throw a guy off guard, especially on faceoffs, by getting on his nerves."
