Things were "golden" for Sidorkiewicz back in 88-89. He took over Mike Liut's position as the Whalers' top goaltender and was named to the NHL's all-rookie team. Three seasons later, however, the Ottawa Senators claimed him in the expansion draft and Sidorkiewicz went on to an 8 win, 48 loss season. Although he was the Senators' representative in the '93 all-star game, he was traded at the end of the season to the New Jersey Devils and played just three games in the NHL over the next five seasons which were split between Fort Wayne of the IHL and Albany of the AHL.

If you've ever wondered how you could easily carry 40 of your favourite hockey or baseball cards on your belt, you missed the boat.

I think he's cool though, he's polish right? Yup.

I think Sidorkiewicz is pretty awesome. He's the goalie most scored on in early-90's hockey videos.

Any time I'm lucky enough to pull a Peter Sidorkiewicz card I consider the pack a winner no matter what else is in it. He was always one of my favorite Whalers.
