Victor Zamick, better known as Chick Zamick (April 16, 1926-October 8, 2007) was an ice hockey player and coach best known for his success as a player at the Nottingham Panthers. He is a member of the British Ice Hockey Hall of Fame and the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame.

Nottingham PanthersEdit

In 1947 he was asked by Sandy Archer to join the Nottingham Panthers, who were in their second season. Zamick went on to play for the English club for eleven seasons. He finished as the club's top point scorer in every season and only failed to score above one hundred points twice. His best season came in 1954-55 when he scored 169 points in 62 games. During the 1955-56 season he coached the Panthers to the Autumn Cup, Ahearne Cup and league treble. To date he is the last man to coach the Panthers to a league title.

Zamick left Nottingham in 1958 to take up a coaching position in Geneva. After returning to the United Kingdom he spent time playing for the Altrincham Aces and Wembley Lions.

LegacyEdit

He scored 1,423 points in 778 appearances and remains one of the Nottingham Panthers' all time leaders. His scoring records have only been surpassed by Paul Adey who is the only other player to have amassed more than 1,000 points for the club.
