Left winger Nick Mickoski played over 700 NHL games for four different clubs during the Original Six era. He was a fine goal scorer and playmaker whose 6-foot-1 frame was difficult to bump off the puck.

The Winnipeg native played junior with the St. Catharines Falcons of the OHA in 1943-44 then spent two years in the MJHL with the Canadian Ukrainian AC and the St. James Canadians. He bounced around the minors and senior leagues for a couple of years before joining the New York Rangers for two playoff games in 1948.

Beginning in the 1948-49 season, "Broadway Nick" spent parts of seven seasons with the Rangers. After scoring 20 points in 1949-50, he helped the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup finals for the last time in 22 years. During the overtime period of the seventh game, he hit the post then watched Pete Babando become a hero in Motown. In 1950-51, he hit the 20-goal mark while teamed with Ed Slowinski and Don Raleigh.

Mickoski joined the Chicago Black Hawks in 1954-55 and was a fine two- way worker with Ed Litzenberger and Red Sullivan. He was picked up by the Detroit Red Wings halfway through the 1957-58 season and made his first playoff appearance in eight years. After playing 66 games for the club in 1958-59, he was acquired by the Boston Bruins where he played his last half season.

The veteran forward spent his last several years as a pro in the minors. In 1962-63, he scored 41 goals for the San Francisco Seals and was named to the WHL first all-star team. He retired in 1969 after spending three years with the Grand Falls Cataracts in the Newfoundland senior league.
