He began his more-than decade association with the sport in 1970, with the Winnipeg Jets of the Western Canada Hockey League. He yielded two 30-plus goals years in the minors, prior to marking his NHL debut with California during the 1973-1974 season. Hrechkosy made an impression in the league during the 1974-1975 season, as he compiled 29 goals with 14 assists in 73 games and finished runner-up to Eric Vail of the Atlanta Flames for the Calder Cup recipient.
