Pete Goegan
Pete Goegan
Defenseman
Number: 23
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 195
Shoots: Left
Born: Mar 6, 1934
Birthplace: Fort William, ON, Canada
Hometown: Fort William, Ontario
Acquired: 1. Traded to Detroit by Cleveland (AHL) for Gord Hollingworth and cash on February 20, 1958; 2. Traded to Detroit by NY Rangers for Noel Price on October 8, 1962.
Pete Goegan was a rugged, surly defenseman who made it to the NHL the old-fashioned way: through tough, grinding toil in the minors. He also lived by the code of rivalries: "Everybody's buddy, buddy today," he observed. "But when we played, nobody was buddy, buddy. We wouldn't talk to the opposing players. If we saw them in a bar after the game, they sat in their own section and we sat in ours and that was it."

Goegan started his progression to the pros with the Fort William Canadiens where, if penalty minutes were goals, he'd have led the league in scoring.

By the late 1950s Goegan had passed through the Cleveland Barons ranks and on to his NHL debut with the Detroit Red Wings. In the Motor City, he had to work hard and fight hard to keep his job. Over the years, he made regular stops in the AHL only to be recalled for brief stints with the big boys.

In February of 1962, Goegan was traded to the Rangers for Noel Price. By October of the same year, the revolving door turned, sending Price back to the Rangers in exchange for the original collateral, Pete Goegan.

In 1967, Goegan was drafted by the expansion Minnesota North Stars where he played on final NHL season before rounding out his career in the minors.
