Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Aldo Guidolin
Aldo Guidolin spent parts of four NHL seasons with the New York Rangers in the 50's. He was used mostly as a solid positional defenceman but also spent many years in the minors as reliable two-way right-winger.

Born in Forks of Credit, Ontario, Guidolin was a junior standout with the OHA's Guelph Biltmores where he won a Memorial Cup in 1952. He scored four goals in 30 games as a rookie with the Blueshirts in 1952-53 and also spent much of the year with the Valleyfield Braves of the Quebec senior circuit.

After two years as a regular in New York, Guidolin was relegated to the Providence Reds of the AHL for most of the 1955-56 schedule. He never returned to the NHL but spent 13 more seasons as one of the most consistent players in the American league. Guidolin helped Providence win the Calder Cup in 1956 then earned a place on the league's first all-star team in 1961 and 1962. The consistent veteran retired after playing 72 games for the Baltimore Clippers in 1968-69.
