Drafted in 1978 by the Washington Capitals, Francheschetti also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres. Lou was a fan favorite in the late 1980s during his tenure as a Capital, mainly for his hard hits. After a rough Franceschetti check, the fans would yell "LOOOOOO". He retired from active play in 1996, and is now working for a small construction company in Toronto.
He also played in the CMHL (Canadian Minor Ball Hockey League), where he played with the Montreal Canadians and finished with 85 goals, 66 assists, and a total of 151 points.
