Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Hartford for Detroit's sixth-round choice in 1993 entry draft on March 22, 1993.
Drafted: CGY / 1980 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 2nd (39th overall)
Steve Konroyd was a sound positional defenceman who could also make crisp outlet passes to his forwards. He played nearly 900 regular season games with six different clubs.

Konroyd played three years with Oshawa Generals scoring 125 points in the span. The steady blueliner was chosen 39th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1980 entry draft. They gave him a four-game look in 1980-81 before sending him back to junior where he scored 68 points in 59 games. Following that strong showing, he was voted to the OHL second all-star team.

Beginning in 1981-82, Konroyd played nearly five years as a regular on the Flames' blueline. His steady play made him an asset for Canada when they won the silver medal at the 1985 World Championships. The Flames were competitive during this period but were overshadowed by the success of the Edmonton Oilers. Prior to the trading deadline in 1986, Konroyd and Richard Kromm were sent to the New York Islanders for Stanley Cup veteran John Tonelli.

Konroyd solidified the Islanders' defence for nearly two and a half years until he was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks in November 1988. Now that he was no longer as mobile as in his younger days, the close checking style of the Hawks suited his game. Konroyd was a solid defender on Chicago when they led the NHL in regular season points in 1990-91. Following the Hawks first round upset at the hands of the Minnesota North Stars, Konroyd joined team Canada at the 1991 World Championships and won another silver medal. Halfway through the next season he was traded to the Hartford Whalers for sniper Rob Brown. Konroyd later served as a role player for Detroit, Ottawa, and Calgary before retiring in 1995.
