Posted: September 25, 2011 in Uncategorized
Dan Maloney
Selected by Chicago Blackhawks round 1 #14 overall 1970 NHL Amateur Draft

“I never counted the number of fights I’ve been in or how many I won or lost. It doesn’t matter how many fights you win, anyway. It’s how many times you show up for them that counts.” – Dan Maloney

On November 5, 1975 in a game between Detroit and Toronto, Dan pounced on Maple Leafs defenseman Brian Glennie from behind. He dropped Glennie with a punch, hit him several more times, then repeatedly lifted and dropped Glennie by the scruff of his neck, causing his head to strike the ice. Glennie was hospitalized with a concussion.

Dan was charged with assault to cause bodily harm for his attack. He was the first NHL player charged under the 1976 crackdown on hockey violence ordered by Ontario Attorney-General Roy McMurtry. Dan was eventually acquitted of the charges by a jury in this widely publicized two-week Toronto trial in the summer of 1976.

 He was acquitted but was banned from playing in Toronto for two seasons.
