Ron Ingram was a sound positional defenseman who could play offensively when the situation required. Beginning with the junior Toronto Marlboros in 1950, he devoted two decades of his life to playing the game he loved.

The Toronto native played with the hometown junior Marlboros for three years before joining the senior Stratford Indians for two seasons and the Montreal Royals for one. During the 1956-57 season, "Bim-Bam" broke into the NHL with 45 games of service for the Chicago Black Hawks. He played solidly and aggressively, but the Hawks and the other five NHL teams had enough good defencemen.

Between 1957-58 and 1962-63, Ingram was a constant on the blueline of the AHL's Buffalo Bisons. He returned to the NHL in 1963 as an emergency call-up in the playoffs for the Chicago Black Hawks. That summer he and young goalie prospect Roger Crozier were sent to the Detroit Red Wings for the flamboyant Howie Young. Ingram played 50 games for the Red Wings the next season before he was traded to the Rangers. The next year he played his last three NHL games for the Blueshirts.

During his last six pro seasons he was a regular for the Baltimore Clippers (AHL), Buffalo Bisons (AHL), and Seattle Totems (WHL). The veteran was particularly strong with the Buffalo Bisons and was placed on the league's first-all-star ream in 1968 and second team the next year. After retiring as a player Ingram coached the Syracuse Blazers of the EHL, replaced Harry Howell as the bench boss of the WHA's San Diego Mariners in 1975. Two years later, Ingram switched teams when he was hired by Nelson Skalbania to coach the Indianapolis Racers.
