Defenseman Mark Suzor was born November 5, 1956 in Windsor, Ontario. The Flyers selected the 6-foot-2, 220-pound blueliner - a hard-shooting standout for the OHA's Kingston Canadians - with the 17th overall pick of the 1976 NHL Draft.
Suzor, who was also drafted by the World Hockey Association's San Diego Mariners, opted for the NHL over the WHA. In 1976-77, he made his pro debut in the American Hockey League for the Springfield Indians (24 goals, 49 points, 108 penalty minutes). Suzor also suited up in four NHL late-season games for the Flyers, recording one assist and four penalty minutes.
On August 5, 1977, the Flyers traded Suzor to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for forward Barry Dean (who had been the second overall pick of the 1975 NHL Draft).
Suzor was a semi-regular for the Rockies during the 1977-78 season (four goals, 19 points, 56 penalty minutes in 60 games). He spent the remainder of his playing career in the minor leagues.
