Play Ball?
In this photo from the 80s, Michel Bergeron models the Nordiques' baseball uniform, apparently from a charity game. Bergeron was drafted by the Nordiques in 1974, but never played for the team. I assume he was in the front office at one point. Thanks to Celine Audy for this very unusual scan.

The following is a complete listing of players who suited up for the Quebec Nordiques from the team's 1972 WHA debut through the final, lockout-shortened 1995 season. Some of these players appeared in one game only; others had successful careers of 10 seasons or more with Les Nords. This list was derived from Ralph Slate's Internet Hockey Database.

*Two men named Alain Cote played for the Nordiques. The second, lesser known Cote was drafted by the Boston Bruins in 1985 and played six games in Quebec during the 1993-94 season (thanks to Jean-Pierre Sylvain).
