Sept 22--Ron Stackhouse

Ron Stackhouse

Selected by Oakland Seals round 2 #18 overall 1969 NHL Amateur Draft
In 1970-71, Stackhouse joined the Seals on a full-time basis. He was paired with Carol Vadnais and the duo clicked. From that point on, he began to solidify all aspects of his game. He played with an offensive orientation, could skate well for a big man, possessed a solid, low shot from the point, and grew to become a fearless shot-blocker.
Early in his second campaign with the club, the Seals couldn't resist making a grab for the offensively prolific Tom Webster. As an exchange, they sent Stackhouse to Detroit where he continued to improve his game during each of his winters in the Motor City. His place on the roster seemed secure, however, until he had a mysterious falling out with the club's management,a conflict he never fully understood. Nonetheless, he was dispatched in short order to Pittsburgh in 1974.
With the Pens, Stackhouse reached the peak of his blueline proficiency.
