A talented centreman when the Vancouver Canucks picked him up 4th overall in 1978, Billy D was dispatched with Rick Vaive to the Toronto Maple Leafs in February 1980. In Toronto, Derlago finally got the stable setting he needed to establish his game as a smooth-skating playmaker. Bill was a consistent 35- to 40-goal man for the Leafs. In 1985 he was traded to the Boston Bruins for Tom Fergus and spent time with Winnipeg and Quebec before retiring in 1988.
