Center Claude Loiselle was an explosive scorer in junior who played solid defense in order to be a factor in the NHL. The hard-working forward could contribute on offense and work the power play but he also used his speed and hockey sense to kill penalties and shut down the top players on the opposition.

Loiselle played Junior B with the Gloucester Rangers before joining the OHL's Windsor Spitfires. He was chosen 23rd overall by the Detroit Red Wings in 1981 while he was in the midst of accumulating 291 career points with the Spits. Loiselle spent his first four years as a pro working on his game in Detroit as well as with the AHL's Adirondack Red Wings.

The young forward was granted an opportunity to play full time in the NHL after he was traded to the New Jersey Devils for Tim Higgins. Loiselle was a versatile two-way forward for three years in Jersey before he was acquired by the Quebec Nordiques. He killed penalties and forechecked effectively for the Nords before he was picked up on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs in March 1991.

Loiselle played a solid defensive role on Toronto in 1991-92 but was traded to the New York Islanders late in the season. He was a decent checker on his new club before retiring after playing 17 games in 1993-94.
