Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ben Ondrus
Ben Ondrus was born June 25, 1982 in Sherwood Park, Alberta. A free-agent signing by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the summer of 2004, Ondrus is a graduate of the WHL's Swift Current Broncos.

A speedy forward with offensive capabilities, Ondrus played five seasons in Swift Current registering 207 points (94-113-207) while making his professional debut with the WCHL's Idaho Steelheads during the 2002-03 season. Despite only playing four games with Idaho and registering three assists, the Sherwood Park native was returned to his junior team for his fifth and final season.

Following a strong junior career, Ondrus suited up for his first full season of professional hockey with the AHL's St. Johns Maple Leafs in 2003-04. Over the course of the next two years Ondrus continued to hone his skills in the AHL, while seeing the St. John's franchise transfer to Toronto in 2005-06. Upon the clubs move to Toronto, Ondrus and the new Toronto Marlies continued to play solid hockey and once injuries began to take their toll on the big club, Ondrus was summoned to join the Leafs roster.
