Right-winger Kevin Scahmehorn played a few games for the Detroit Red Wings and Los Angeles Kings in the 70s and 80s. He was a gritty scorer who enjoyed plenty of success in junior and the minor leagues.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, Schamehorn was taken 58th overall by Detroit in 1976 after a 32-goal season with the WHL's New Westminster Bruins. He played three games for the Wings in 1976-77 but otherwise enjoyed a fine rookie year with 27 goals for the Kalamazoo Wings of the IHL. After scoring 45 goals for Kalamazoo in 1978-79, Schamehorn was given another brief look by Detroit but ended up back in the minors.
Prior to the 1980-81 season Schamehorn signed as a free agent with the LA Kings. He played five more NHL games with them before settling in as a prolific minor league scorer until his retirement in 1990. Along the way he registered six straight 30-goal seasons in the IHL between 1982 and 1987.
