Deasley's return sparks Blue;
NHL in future for 'M' forward
By KEN GOLDBERG.
Flame is blazes of light and heat.
Brilliance. It implies intense emo-
tion and strong passion.
Flames become fire. Fire wreaks
havoc, dominating and destroying
that which blocks its path.
MICHIGAN forward Bryan
Deasley has a fire of desire burning
inside him. He hates to lose. Due to
his size, strength, and skill, he often
dominates his opponents. And he is
destined to become a Flame.
On June 13, 1987, in Joe Louis
Arena, the National Hockey
League's Calgary Flames made the
6-3, 197 pounder their first-round
pick of the draft (19th overall). It
was a fire sale for the Flames.
"We think we got a heck of a
player for that late in the first
round," said Al Coates, assistant to
the president of the Calgary organi-
zation. "Bryan's an agressive guy.
With his size and strength he can
beat a lot of guys along the boards,
yet he still has the soft hands neces-
sary to be a scorer.
"He's definitely a top-notch pro
prospect, probably more talented
than some of the guys who got
drafted before him."
LAST MONTH, Deasley played
with Team Canada in the Spengler
Cup in Davis, Switzerland. High-
lighted by a 4-3 victory over Russia
in the gold medal game, Canada won
the tournament. Deasley contributed
to the triumph with four assists in
It was not the first time Deasley
had competed in Europe. He has
played across the Atlantic in three
previous tournaments, including one
in Denmark at the age of 14. A
semi-pro team was so impressed
with his play that it offered Deasley
a contract. Deasley's parents
respectfully declined the offer, much
to the dismay of their teenage son.
Like many young Canadian
hockey stars, Deasley intended to
join the junior leagues, with North
Bay following high school. The
Toronto native reconsidered, how-
ever, once he saw Ann Arbor.
"The summer before my senior
year, the Michigan coaches contacted
me and invited me down to campus,"
Deasley recalled. "So I came down
with my dad, talked with the
coaches, and saw the campus. I just
loved the atmosphere here. Plus,
school's important to me. An
education and degree from Michigan
is something that will help me down
"I (also) wanted to go to a pro-
gram where I'd have a chance to
contribute immediately and be part
of the rebuilding."
DEASLEY CAME to Michi-
gan in the fall of 1986 with all eyes
eager to see what "the phenom"
could do. In his first season, the left-
winger lit up the scoreboard with 13
goals and 11 assists in 38 games.
Four of those goals tied games, and
three others put the Wolverines
After missing the team's first 12
games this season with a broken
fibula in his right leg, Deasley has
gradually worked his way back near
Playing in only 12 games thus
far, Deasley has notched eight goals
and two assists. Four of those goals
came last weekend in the Wolver-
ines' split with Ohio State, includ-
ing the game-tying and game-winner
on Friday. While Deasley has a
knack for scoring in the clutch, he is
most noted for his checking.
"Bryan's role is to add some of-
fense and dish out the checks," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson. "He's
a solid two-way player who's always
dangerous offensively, but his size
and strength are his main assets as a
"The 'Deas' is a real foice out on
the ice," said Michigan defenseman
Todd Copeland, who roomed with
Deasley last year. "The guy is strong
and tough to move, yet he can burn
you with a move or a quick accurate
shot. He gets real intense, so as a
defenseman I'm glad he's on my
"When I'm gone, I hope to be
remembered as a part of a class that
made a difference," Deasley said.
"Last season, I really got sick of
losing. Now we're turning the corner
as a team."
