Mike Bloom
Mike Bloom
Left Wing
Number: 25
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 206
Shoots: Left
Born: Apr 12, 1952
Birthplace: Ottawa, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Washington for Blair Stewart on June 12, 1974.
Drafted: BOS / 1972 NHL Amateur Draft
Round: 1st (16th overall)
Mike Bloom joined the OHA's St. Catharines Blackhawks in 1969-70 playing alongside the likes of Marcel Dionne and Al McDonough. In his rookie year the big left winger turned in a solid offensive showing, netting 20 goals in 42 games. He followed that up with another 20 goal season but he had his best offensive performance in his final year as a 19-year-old in 1991-92, potting 25 goals and 65 points. He finished second in team scoring to Paul Shakes that season despite missing 12 games.

The Boston Bruins selected Bloom with their first pick in the 1972 NHL amateur draft, 16th overall. However, Boston was known as "The Big Bad Bruins" and with good cause. They were the NHL's most talented team and had a list of tough players to fill the role that Bloom had hoped to land. He played exclusively in the minors for two years and the Bruins left him unprotected in the 1974 expansion draft when it was apparent they would not be able to find a spot for him in their lineup. He was selected by the Washington Capitals and it was there that he got to play in 67 games. The team was predictably horrible in its first season and even drew some harsh criticism from many media members. Jay Greenberg of The Hockey News wrote a column reflecting the team's first season in existence. "One of the featured attractions for the Caps' first game at the Capital Center was Mike Bloom. It didn't get a whole lot better than that." He responded with seven goals and 26 points on the woeful club before being traded late in the season to the Detroit Red Wings. He played another two years in the Motor City but never was able to find a scoring touch and was eventually dispatched to the minors.

After two years of riding the buses, and no imminent sign of being called back to the NHL, Bloom decided to move to Europe for a year where he played with Rheem Utrecht in Holland in 1979-80.
