Wensink, now 67, retired from pro hockey following the 1988-89 season, when he was a member of Team Netherlands.

His time in the NHL stretched over 8 years, as he suited up for 446 games. He was drafted in 1973, selected in round 7 by the St. Louis Blues, 104th overall.

In recent years, Wensink has focused on coaching, working the bench of minor hockey teams in St. Louis.
