Gene Achtymichuk
Gene Achtymichuk
Center
Number: 12
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 170
Shoots: Left
Born: Sep 7, 1932
Birthplace: Lamont, AB, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Montreal with Claude Laforge and Bud MacPherson for cash on June 3, 1958.
A prospect in the Montreal system, Acky was called up by Montreal in December 1957 to replace the injured Jean Beliveau. During his 16 games his linemates were Bernie Geofrrion and Bert Olmstead and he scored eight points. Perhaps a more important sidebar to the story, though, was that to replace him with the Montreal Royals the Ottawa-Hull Junior Canadiens had to send young prospect Ralph Backstrom to the Royals.

At the end of the season, Achtymichuk was traded to Detroit, and in '58-'59 he again saw action as an emergency call-up from the farm team in Edmonton. With the Wings, he played with Gordie Howe and Alex Delvecchio for 12 games, his last in the NHL. He roamed around in the minors for another decade, and during his time with the Long Island Ducks he became coach in June 1966 after incumbent John Muckler accepted a job from the New York Rangers as director of player personnel.

Acky's final season of pro was '68-'69 with Edmonton of the ASHL.
