Eric Walsky (born September 30, 1984) is an American professional ice hockey right winger who plays for the Lausanne HC of the National League A (Switzerland).

Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Walsky played with the River City Lancers of the USHL before committing to a four-year collegiate career split between the University of Alaska-Anchorage and Colorado College. Upon completing his senior year with the Tigers, Walsky signed a contract with the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League on March 20, 2009.[1] He then joined the Canucks American Hockey League affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, on an amateur try-out to conclude the 2008–09 season.

In the 2009–10 season, Eric was assigned to Moose to begin his first professional season. He played only 37 games with Manitoba before he was re-assigned to secondary affiliate the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL. He then signed a three-year contract with Genève-Servette HC of the Swiss NLA on June 7, 2010.[2] In January 2013, he signed, with fellow Geneva teammate Dan Fritsche, a three-year contract with the HC Lugano through the end of the 2016 season.
