Left winger Nick Libett used his speed and quick hands to be an asset at both ends of the ice. He reached the 20-goal mark six times and would have been better known if he played on one of the NHL's better clubs.

Born in Stratford, Ontario, Libett played junior with the OHA's Hamilton Red Wings where he recorded three straight 20-goal seasons. He turned pro with the CHL's Memphis Wings in 1966-67 and was called up for 22 games by the parent Detroit Red Wings the next season.

Beginning in 1968-69, the talented winger was a regular in the Wings' lineup for eleven seasons during some lean times. He recorded six 20-goal seasons and scored a career-high 31 in 1971-72 playing on a line with Marcel Dionne and Bill Collins. The Wings made the playoffs just twice during Libett's long tenure in Motown. While he was in the midst of another solid year in 1976-77, he was chosen to play in the NHL All-Star Game for the first and only time in his career.

Following the 1978-79 season, the veteran forward represented Canada at the World Championships. In August 1979 he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Pete Mahovlich. Libett was a role player for two years on the Pens before retiring in 1981.
