Defenceman Ted Lanyon played five games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1967-68. He was a fine passer who could play the point on the power play and take the body in his own zone.
The Winnipeg native played junior with the St. Boniface Canadians of the MJHL before spending most of his rookie pro season with the St. Paul Saints of the IHL. He bounced around the minors for several years then played five NHL games after he was traded to Pittsburgh as they prepared for their inaugural season.
During the early 70s Lanyon was a mainstay in the Eastern League with the Greensboro Generals and Johnstown Jets before he retired in 1973. His steady play earned him selection to the EHL South first all-star team four straight years beginning in 1970.
