Right-winger Eddy Godin played parts of two seasons with the Washington Capitals in the late 70s. He was a fine goal scorer in junior and the minors but was unable to shed the tighter checking of the NHL consistently.
Born in Donnacona, Quebec Godin was selected 39th overall by the Caps in 1977 after a 62-goal season with the QMJHL's Quebec Remparts. The clever forward was also selected to the East Division second all-star team in 1976.
Godin played 27 games for Washington during his first two pro seasons but spent most of his time with the AHL's Hershey Bears. In 1980 he recorded 14 points in 16 games when the Bears won the Calder Cup. Godin retired after playing 21 games for Hershey in 1982-83.
