Entering his 9th season in the NHL and his first full season with the Rockies, Resch came in a highly publisized multi-player trade with the New York Islanders on March 10, 1981, wich included the Rockies receiving center Steve Tambellini in exchange for defenseman Mike McEwen.

Prior to the trade, Resch appeared in 32 games with the Islanders allowing 28 goals, sporting an 18-7-5 record and a 3,07 goal against average wich included 3 shutouts.

Resch is a sportswriter's dream, He is never at loss for words and is usually bubbling with enthusiasm. His on-ice exploits are just as noteworthy - for example, Resch delighted fans by kissing his goal posts after recording a shutouts against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1975 Stanley Cup Playoff quarterfinal series, while playing with the Islanders. During his tenure with the Isles, Chico owned several club records including a 23-game unbeaten streak in 1978-79, wich stands as the 2nd longest in NHL history at that time. Resch was a runner-up to Bryan Trottier in 1976 for the Calder Trophy, was MVP of the Fort Worth Texans of the CHL in 1973-74 and Rookie of the Year with the Muskegon Mohawks in the IHL in 1972-73.

A native of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Chico is a graduate of the University of Minnesota at Duluth, He used to spent his summers with his wife Diane and their daughter, Holly, at their Emily, Minnesota home.

Resch signed a multi-year contract with the Rockies, thus ending much speculations as to wether the highly talented and popular goaltender would sign with the Rockies, or another NHL team.

The 5.09, 165 pound Resch has twice benn named to the NHL 2nd All-Star team (1975-76 and 1978-79).
