Pete Horeck
Left Wing
Number: 11
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 158
Shoots: Left
Born: Jun 15, 1923
Birthplace: Massey, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Chicago with Leo Reise for Adam Brown and Ray Powell on Dec. 9, 1946.
Pete Horeck enjoyed a 426-game NHL career over eight seasons, beginning in 1944-45 as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks, who claimed him from Cleveland in the 1944 intra-league draft. It became evident Horeck had a knack for scoring, netting 20 goals in each of his first two seasons with the Blackhawks. He had drawn the attention of the Detroit Red Wings, who acquired him in a trade with Leo Reise for Adam Brown and Ray Powell in December, 1946.

After three seasons in the Motor City, Horeck was traded to the Boston Bruins in a multi-player deal in the summer of 1949. He played two years there before finishing out his NHL career back where it all began in Chicago.

Although Horeck played on a Detroit team that advanced to the Stanley Cup finals in both 1948 and 1949, he never played on a championship winner, losing both years to the Toronto Maple Leafs. After retiring from the Blackhawks, Horeck played senior hockey in Northern Ontario until 1957 and then had one final 15-game stint with Charlotte of the EHL in 1959-60.
