Mr. Nice Guy.
A self-proclamation from the all-time leading point scorer in Toledo hockey history. Jablonski was a model of consistency in his 10-year career, never posting less than 40 points per season for the Blades and Hornets, while providing outstanding two-way play.
Raised in Selkirk, Manitoba, Jablonski scored 281 goals and 365 assists, for a total of 646 points in 742 Toledo regular season and playoff games during a decade-long run which saw him make Toledo his home. He ranks fourth in number of games played in the history of the International Hockey League.
Tendered by the Detroit Red Wings as a junior, Jablonski was a gentlemanly skater who was a leader on the Blades’ 1964 and 1967 Turner Cup title teams. He never recorded more than 18 penalty minutes in a season for Toledo.
