Today in history: July 23

Birthday post

Lyall Wiseman: Right wing who played 61 games for the Capitals in 1949-50, totaling 15 goals and 30 assists. He also played in six of the Caps' postseason games with one assist -- all wins, as the team swept its way to the Calder Cup that season. Wiseman joined the Caps after two seasons at the "AA"-level Omaha, but that would be his final North American pro season. He would spend much of the 1950s playing senior hockey in Canada. A native of Montreal, he was born in 1927. 

Roger Hayfield: Left wing who played for the Chiefs in their first two years, from 1955-57. In 81 games, he had 23 goals and 17 assists. He would be traded to the EHL's Washington Lions in 1956-57 after 22 games in Indy. Hayfield's 21 goals in 1955-56 led the Chiefs' first team. It was his highest-scoring year of pro hockey. Hayfield continued to play in Washington through 1959. A native of Quebec City, he was born in 1930. 

Jeremy Tejchma: Forward who played for the Ice's inaugural USHL team in 2004-05. In 58 games, he totaled five goals and 12 assists. He split the next season between USHL Waterloo and NAHL Cleveland, and played one year at Wayne State University. A native of Muskegon, Mich., he is 25.
