Paslawski was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan to parents Sally and Walter Paslawski. He played junior hockey for the Prince Albert Raiders. Not drafted, Paslawski signed with the Montreal Canadiens in October 1981. He made his professional debut in the 1983–84 with Montreal. He was traded later that season to the St. Louis Blues.

As a member of the St. Louis Blues during the 1985–86 NHL season, he was a key contributor to the Blues' upset victory in game six of the Conference finals against Calgary, a game known as the Monday Night Miracle. His best season statistically was the 1986–87 season, when he scored 29 goals and 64 points, both career highs.
