Geralton, Ontario's Boris "Bo" Elik was born on October 17, 1929 and played two seasons with the North Bay Blackhawks and then four more with the North Bay Trappers, and a single game with Cleveland Barons of the American Hockey League before making a full-time leap to the AHL in 1956-57.

Elik made an immediate impression with the Barons as a rookie, scoring 40 goals and 40 assists and capturing the Dudley "Red" Garret award for the league's top rookie and being named to the First All Star Team. All the personal success was capped off when the Barons captured the Calder Cup; the AHL's championship trophy. Though not as proficient in his second year, he was named to Second All Star Team. The left winger played four more seasons in the AHL before he got his shot in the NHL, playing three games for the Detroit Red Wings.

In his three games with the Wings in 1962-63, Elik didn't register a point and after playing out the year with the Edmonton Flyers of the Western Hockey League, Elik left professional hockey.
