The first six seasons of Vic Stasiuk's professional career are a marked contrast to his final eight. He entered the big leagues with the Chicago Blackhawks in 1949-50. From there, he shuttled between the minor and major leagues with the Hawks and Wings above and the Edmonton Flyers and Indianapolis Capitals below.

It was not until he reached Boston in 1955 that he hit stride as an accomplished two-way player who could score goals and rub his opponents the wrong way. With the arrival of Johnny Bucyk, the "Uke Line" was born. The trio consisted of Stasiuk on the right, Bronco Horvath in the middle and Bucyk over on the left side. For about the next five seasons, the "Ukes" terrorized the opposition while reaching an unprecedented level of scoring. In 1957-58, all three linemates topped the 20-goal plateau?an NHL first.

In 1960, the "Ukes" were disbanded. Stasiuk rounded out his NHL days with the Detroit Red Wings in 1963. From there he played for the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL before completing his on-ice career with the Memphis Wings of the CHL in 1966.

Stasiuk then turned to coaching, first in the minors with Memphis, Pittsburgh, New Jersey and Quebec City. Next he took over the helm of the Philadelphia Flyers where he had a hand in developing the roster that went on to claim two Stanley Cup victories during the mid-seventies. Stasiuk, however, had been relieved of his post before success had arrived.

From Philly, he moved on to coach the California Golden Seals and finally, the Vancouver Canucks where he retired at the close of the 1972-73 season.
