Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Darren Pang
Darren Pang was born February 17, 1964 in Meaford, Ontario. A graduate of the Ontario Junior Hockey League's Nepean Raiders, Pang spent three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with stops in Belleville and Ottawa.

An OHL First Team All-Star in 1984, the Meaford, Ontario native back stopped the Ottawa 67's to the 1984 Memorial Cup championship while earning Memorial Cup All-Star Team honors and capturing the Hap Emms Memorial Trophy as the Memorial Cup Tournament Top Goaltender.

Following a successful last year to his junior career, Pang signed as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks in the summer of 1984 and joined the International Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals for the 1984-85 season.

Even though he spent the majority of the season in the "I", Pang made his NHL debut with Chicago during the season before returning to the "I" the following year with Saginaw. After a 500. season in Saginaw, Pang spent the majority of the 1986-87 season with the Generals while playing in 12 games with the American Hockey League's Nova Scotia Oilers.

Pang's strong play during the 1986-87 season in Saginaw earned him IHL Second Team All-Star honors and a return ticket to the NHL. In 45 regular season and four playoff games with Chicago, Pang finished with 18-26-1 record earning him NHL All-Rookie Team honors.

In 1988-89, Pang spent the majority of the season in Chicago while playing in two games with the Saginaw Hawks before joining the IHL's Indianapolis Ice the following year.

At the Blackhawks training camp in 1990, Pang suffered a career-ending knee injury that prematurely ended his playing career.
