Left-winger Paul Marshall played parts of four years with three different NHL teams in the 70s and 80s. He was a dangerous goal scorer in junior who enjoyed a decent minor pro career.
The Toronto native was a standout on the Don Mills Flyers at the Midget level before spending his junior career with the Hamilton Fincups and Brantford Alexanders. In 1978 Marshall was a key factor in getting the Fincups all they way to the OHA final. He was chosen 31st overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins after scoring 42 goals for Brantford in 1978-79.
The young winger fired nine goals and played well without the puck in 46 games as a rookie in 1979-80. Marshall spent most of the year on a tricky line with veterans Greg Malone and Gary McAdam. By the next season, he no longer fit into the club's plans and was sent to the Toronto Maple Leafs with Kim Davis for Dave Burrows and Paul Gardner. Marshall played intermittently for the Leafs but was a 20-goal scorer in the AHL and CHL. Early in the 1982-83 season he was traded to the Hartford Whalers and played 13 games for his new club. Marshall ended up playing most of the year with the AHL's Binghamton Whalers where he notched 25 goals before retiring.
