A member of the Flyers for a portion of their second season of existence, left winger Myron Stankiewicz was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on Dec. 4, 1935. Stankiewicz was a mainstay with the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears for most of the 1960s, hitting the 20-goal mark six times in parts of eight seasons. He finally reached the NHL in 1968-69 as he neared his 33rd birthday.

Stankiewicz appeared in 16 games that season with the St. Louis Blues. On January 16, 1969, the injury-riddled Flyers claimed the forward off waivers from the Blues. He dressed in 19 games with the Flyers, recording five assists and 25 penalty minutes.

On March 4, 1969, the Flyers assigned Stankiewicz to the AHL's Quebec Aces. He dressed in the only Stanley Cup playoff game of his career in Game 2 of the Flyers' quarterfinal series against the Blues.

Stankiewicz's older brother, Ed, also played briefly in the NHL, appearing in five games for the Detroit Red Wings in 1955-56. Additionally, the elder sibling spent two seasons with Hershey (1957-58 and 1958-59) prior to Myron's arrival on the club.
