Ron Delorme was a fifth-round draft choice, 56th overall, by the Kansas City Scouts in the 1975 NHL Entry Draft.

In 1973-74, an 18-year-old Delorme joined the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL, where he played 59 games, scoring 19 goals and 15 assists for 34 points. The following year he and the team moved to Lethbridge. In 69 games, Delorme had 30 goals and 57 assists for 87 points. He also proved he was no pushover, racking up 144 minutes in penalties.

In 1975-76, at the age of 20, Delorme divided his playing time between the Broncos and Tucson Mavericks of the CHL while also appearing in 22 games for the Denver Spurs, who became the Ottawa Civics in the World Hockey Association.

In 1976-77, Delorme switched from the WHA and joined the NHL's Colorado Rockies, the club that drafted him. He spent four years in Denver, his best season coming in 1979-80 when he had 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 75 games.

The last four years of Delorme's NHL career were spent with the Vancouver Canucks. In 1981-82, Delorme played in 59 games, scoring nine goals and eight assists. That year, the Cinderella Canucks advanced all the way to the Stanley Cup finals before losing to the two-time defending champion New York Islanders. Ron Delorme retired from the NHL following the 1984-85 season.
