Who is Mike Stevens?
Mike Stevens is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 23 games in the National Hockey League. He is the younger brother of NHL superstar Scott Stevens, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007.
Stevens played his junior hockey with the Kitchener Rangers, the same team as his brother Scott, and was selected 58th overall in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. While still playing in Kitchener in 1984–85, he received a surprise six-game callup to the Canucks, recording three assists. However, he would have a difficult transition to pro hockey, struggling to produce in two seasons in Vancouver's farm system with the Fredericton Express of the American Hockey League. He did, however, make himself a physical presence, recording over 200 penalty minutes both years.
Prior to the 1986–87, Stevens was sold to the Boston Bruins. He broke through offensively in the AHL scoring 30 goals, and was called up to the Bruins for seven games, recording an assist. However, he was released by the Bruins after the season and signed with the New York Islanders for the 1987–88 campaign. He would appear in nine games for the Islanders, recording his only NHL goal.
