Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Troy Loney
Rugged left-winger Troy Loney was a battler in the corners and the front of the net. He added a physical component to his team and chipped in with a fair numbers of goals during his twelve years in the league.

Born in Bow Island, Alberta, Loney played junior with the WHL's Lethbridge Broncos. He was chosen 52nd overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1982 and spent the majority of his first pro season in the AHL with the Baltimore Skipjacks.

The rugged 6'3" winger joined the Penguins on a more regular basis in 1984-85 and became a useful grinder for several years. He hit double figures in goals four times and was considered a difficult foe to outwork in the corners. In 1991 and 1992 he provided grit and six goals as the Pens won the Stanley Cup both years.

In June 1993, the veteran forward was claimed by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim at the Expansion Draft and named the squad's first captain. He scored a career-high 13 goals for the first year club and was major reason why the Ducks finished with a respectable 71 points. Loney retired in 1995 after splitting the lockout-shortened season between the New York Islanders and New York Rangers.
