Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Daniel Goneau
Left-winger Daniel Goneau played parts of three seasons with the New York Rangers in the late 90s. Since turning pro in 1996-97, he was better able to score on a regular basis in the minors.

Born in Montreal, Goneau starred with the Laval Leafs and Lac St-Louis club in his youth. He then joined the Laval Titan and Granby Bisons and was drafted by the Boston Bruins in 1994. Unable to come to terms with the club, the young forward re-entered the draft and was taken 48th overall by New York after scoring 54 goals for Granby and being named to the QMJHL first all-star team in 1996.

The gifted youngster scored 10 goals in 41 games as a rookie in 1996-97 but was unable to build on this early success. Goneau became a fixture on the AHL's Binghamton Rangers and Hartford Wolf Pack, helping the latter club win the Calder Cup in 2000. He spent the 2000-01 season in the IHL with the Manitoba Moose and Detroit Vipers.
