Goaltender Darren Eliot was selected in the sixth round, 115th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1980 draft.

After playing in the junior ranks in southern Ontario, Eliot played four years of collegiate hockey at Cornell University, the same school Ken Dryden attended more than a decade earlier. His freshman year and his senior year were his busiest, when he started 26 games for Cornell. He graduated with a degree in agricultural economics, and was a two-time All-Ivy selection, and earned All-America honors in 1983.

As the next stop after leaving Cornell, Eliot spent 32 games with the Canadian national team in 1983-84. The following season Eliot was on the L.A. Kings roster and played in 33 games. He also played another 34 games for the Canadian national team.

The time in L.A. lasted two more seasons before Eliot was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in 1987-88. After a year in the minors with Adirondack, he was called up for three games with the Red Wings. In his final NHL season, Eliot played two games for the Buffalo Sabres in 1988-89.

In 1996, Darren Eliot was elected to the Cornell Athletic Hall of Fame.
