New Jersey's 6th, 106th overall, in 1982.
As a teen, Mike Moher honed his playing skills in northern Ontario, first playing with the Schreiber North Stars of the NOJHA in 1977-78 at the age of 15. He had the scoring touch, netting 35 goals and 65 points in just 20 games. After another year in the NOJHA with the Garson Native Sons, he moved up to major junior hockey playing with the Sudbury Wolves.
Moher then played three years with the Kitchener Rangers, twice helping the team to advance to the Memorial Cup, winning it all in 1982. Other such notables on that powerful Rangers' squad included, Brian Bellow, Al MacInnis and Scott Stevens. He was also a member of the 1982 Canadian gold medalists at the World Junior Championships.
Moher was selected 106th overall in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils thanks to his performance at the World Championships and the Rangers winning the Memorial Cup. In 1982-83, he was called up to play nine games with the Devils as an injury replacement, but he was unable to retain a spot on the roster. He played most of the year with the Wichita Wind of the CHL.
Despite his early successes in hockey, Moher played just one more year of pro hockey with the Maine Mariners in 1983-84 before retiring at the age of 22. In nine NHL games, he had one assist.
