Pat Maroon was lured away from the U.S.A.’s NAHL for the 2007-08 season by the ever-persuasive Hunter brothers. Maroon played just one season in the Ontario Hockey League with the London Knights and led the league’s first year players in assists (55) and points (90). He led the team in scoring that season, nearly 30 points better than the next player down the list.
Recently, Maroon was traded from the Adirondack Phantoms to the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League for another player developed by the Hunters, Danny Syvret. Maroon and Syvret had previously been teammates with the Phantoms during the 2008-09 season and the start of the 2009-10 season before Syvret was moved to Syracuse.
Pat was already property of the Philadelphia Flyers before playing a game in the Ontario Hockey League. He was taken in the sixth round of the 2007 draft, 161st overall. He has played with the Flyers AHL affiliate since graduating. In his rookie season with the Phantoms, Maroon was sixth in points in the league among rookies.
Maroon had a great start to the 2010-11 season with Adirondack and was providing the team with offense that they still desperately need. However, he was released from the team after nine games after a disagreement with the club and can finally now resume his season with the Crunch. He is joined in Syracuse by another former London Knight, Leigh Salters.
The Crunch have yet to post Pat Maroon’s profile on their official site. You can still check out his profile on the AHL official website.
