A native of Lindsay, Ontario, Ron Ellis made his NHL debut during the 1963-64 season, playing in 1 game with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a call up from the Toronto Marlboros. Ellis made the Leafs full time the next season, scoring 23 goals and racking up 39 points in 62 games. His style of play impressed many, including line-mates Dave Keon and Bob Pulford. Leafs great Ace Bailey was also so impressed with Ellis’ play that prior to the 1968/69 season, he insisted that Ellis wear his retired number 6 jersey. The youngest regular on Toronto’s 1967 Stanley Cup winning team, Ellis played his entire career in Toronto. Ellis was also a member of Team Canada for the 1972 Summit Series. Ellis initially retired after scoring a career high 61 points in 79 games in 1975, but came out of retirement 2 seasons later prior to the 1977/78 season. Ellis would retire for good in 1981. After retiring from hockey, Elis went into the business world and later joined the staff at the Hockey Hall of Fame, where he serves to this day.
