Chief Amateur Scout
Ron Delorme is one of the longest-serving members of the Vancouver Canucks. With over 20 years of scouting experience and 210 games played at right wing, Delorme has been a member of the Canucks in some capacity since 1981. Delorme coordinates Vancouver’s amateur scouting staff and assembles the Canucks draft selection list. He was named Chief Amateur Scout in August 2000.
Delorme was originally drafted by Denver in the 1975 WHA Entry Draft. His rights were then transferred to the Colorado Rockies in July 1976, after the franchise relocated to the NHL. He played in 314 games for the Rockies from 1976-77 to 1980-81 before he was claimed by Vancouver in the NHL waiver draft in October 1981. Delorme played a large role in the Canucks run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1982 and is probably best remembered by Vancouver fans for his inspirational fight versus Chicago’s Grant Mulvey in the Campbell Conference Final.
Delorme played four seasons for the Canucks from 1981-82 to 1984-85, recording 17 goals, 20 assists (37 points) and 383 penalty minutes in 210 games before a knee injury forced his retirement in 1985. In 524 career NHL games, Delorme recorded 83 goals, 83 assists (166 points) and 667 penalty minutes.
