Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dan Dorion
Centre Dan Dorion spent parts of two years with the New Jersey Devils in the 80s. He was a top goal scorer in college who enjoyed a fair bit of pro success in the minors and Europe.

Born in Astoria, New York, Dorion starred as a junior with the Austin Mavericks of the USHL. After scoring 52 goals in 50 games for the club he was picked 232nd overall by the Devils in 1982. The gifted pivot then spent three years at the University of Western Michigan and was twice named to the CCHA first all-star team and placed on the NCAA west first and second all-american teams once each. Dorion was also picked to represent the US at the 1985 World Championships.

After recording 104 points in 42 games in his senior year, Dorion notched a goal and an assist in three late season games for the Devils in April, 1986. He then spent the bulk of the next three years with the Maine Mariners and Utica Devils of the AHL before opting to go overseas. After playing the 1989-90 season with France's HC Fiemme, Dorion sat out a year then returned to play three years with the Nottingham Panthers and Humberside Seahawks of the British league before retiring in 1994.
