Mazur turned pro in 1987 and signed with the Canucks. His first three pro seasons were spent primarily with the Canucks' IHL farm teams where he was a productive scorer, although he did manage to earn two callups and gain six games of NHL experience. While his size (6'1" 210 lbs) and scoring touch were attractive to a small Canuck team, he needed time in the IHL to work on his skating, which was marginal by NHL standards.

Mazur had a strong training camp in 1990 to crack Vancouver's NHL squad full-time. Unfortunately, though, his season was curtailed by two major injuries which limited him to only 36 games. However, he was productive in his limited action, finishing with 11 goals and 18 points. He also played in all 6 playoff games in Vancouver's opening-round loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Mazur was again on the Canucks' roster to start the 1991–92 season, although he was seeing limited action as a depth player. Following the team's signing of Russian superstar forward Pavel Bure a month into the season on October 31, Mazur was the odd man out and was re-assigned to the AHL.

Jay Mazur (born January 22, 1965 in Hamilton, Ontario) is a retired Canadian ice hockey forward, who grew up in Akron, Ohio.

Selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 12th round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft from Breck HS in Minnesota (Mazur's father was a petroleum engineer who spent time in both the US and Canada), Mazur then spent four years at the University of Maine, where he earned a degree in physical education.

Mazur turned pro in 1987 and signed with the Canucks. His first three pro seasons were spent primarily with the Canucks' IHL farm teams where he was a productive scorer, although he did manage to earn two callups and gain six games of NHL experience. While his size (6'1" 210 lbs) and scoring touch were attractive to a small Canuck team, he needed time in the IHL to work on his skating, which was marginal by NHL standards.

Mazur had a strong training camp in 1990 to crack Vancouver's NHL squad full-time. Unfortunately, though, his season was curtailed by two major injuries which limited him to only 36 games. However, he was productive in his limited action, finishing with 11 goals and 18 points. He also played in all 6 playoff games in Vancouver's opening-round loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Mazur was again on the Canucks' roster to start the 1991–92 season, although he was seeing limited action as a depth player. Following the team's signing of Russian superstar forward Pavel Bure a month into the season on October 31, Mazur was the odd man out and was re-assigned to the AHL.

Following his retirement he returned to Maine, where he currently coaches high-school hockey at Scarborough High School and is a Gym Teacher at Scarborough Middle School.[1]
