Playing career

Jack Leswick played 3 1/2 seasons for the Duluth Hornets of the AHA. He spent the second half of 1932–33 playing for the Wichita Blue Jays. He began the 1934 season in the AHA playing for the Kansas City Greyhounds. Leswick was called up to the Chicago Black Hawks shortly after the beginning of the 1934 season. He played 37 games, scoring 1 goal and 7 assists and was assessed 16 penalty minutes (PIM), as Chicago won the Stanley Cup championship that spring.

Suspicious death

Leswick died in the off-season after the 1933-34 season. His body was found in the Assiniboine River without his wallet or other valuables. Leswick's death was ruled either a suicide or accident by the Winnipeg Coroner.[1]
