Ron Duguay


In the small town of Val Caron, Ontario (24 km north of Sudbury) Ron Duguay played his minor league hockey in the Valley East Minor Hockey Association - a far cry from the jet set life in New York City, where Ron would find himself in the years to come.

Drafted by the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League in 1974. Ron had 26 goals, 52 assists, 78 points and 43 PIM in 64 games in his first year with the Wolves. In his second year with the Wolves he collected 134 points on 42 goals and 92 assists and had 101 PIM. In his final year with the Wolves he played 61 games with 43 goals and 66 assist for 109 points. Ron still holds many records or is in the top 3 in the Wolves record books.

The summer of 1977 would change Ron's life forever. The future playboy was the New York Rangers 2nd choice ( 13th overall ) in the 1977 amateur draft. In his first year with the rangers Ron played 70 games and had 20 goals, 20 assists for 40 points. With his hard work ethic and his good looks Ron quickly became a fan favourite and that did not go unnoticed. Soon he became the talk of the town and not only did he appear in sports magazines, he also appeared in teen magazines and gossip columns. Ron even joined the Elite Modeling agency where he did various ads for magazines and television commercials for Sassoon jeans.

Although admittedly I'm using a completely unscientific formula, I weigh career achievements (era statistics, awards, championships) and legacy (impact on and off ice, peak dominance) equally high. I rank player ability as the third most important ingredient, as first and foremost as a tie breaker. Hence, I'm not necessarily looking for the better player, as in text book definitions of what a hockey player should be, but for players with the greatest careers and greatest legacies. Therefore the best player is not n…
