Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marco Baron
Marco Baron had a rotten string of luck when he first entered the NHL. In his first sustained spell with the Boston Bruins, in 1980-81, he was replaced by a U.S. national hero, Jim Craig, hot off the thrill of his Olympic victory, and appeared in only ten games.

Craig, of course, didn't work out, and Baron lugged the majority of the workload the next year, but despite his solid play and 22-16-4 record he was relegated to the minors for much of 1982-83.

On January 3, 1984, he was traded to Los Angeles straight up for, Bob LaForest, but his play with the Kings, on a middling team, was his undoing. He had a GAA of 4.31 and a record over 21 games of 3-14-4. Los Angeles released him and he signed with the Edmonton Oilers, but after just one game he was on his way to the minors until season's end, when he retired.
