Drafted: DET / 1979 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 4th (66th overall)
John Ogrodnick was born June 20, 1959 in Ottawa, Ontario. The fourth choice, 66th overall selection of the Detroit Red Wings in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, Ogrodnick is a graduate of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League and the of the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League.

The Ottawa, Ontario, native spent two and half seasons with the WCJHL's New Westminster Bruins and is a two time Memorial Cup champion (1977, 1978) while sharing WCJHL Rookie of the Year honors in 1978 and was a member of Canada's 1979 World Junior Championship team.

An offensively gifted player, Ogrodnick made his NHL debut with Detroit during the 1979-80 season. After beginning the season with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Adirondack, Ogrodnick joined the Wings in January and went to score eight goals while adding 24 assists for 32 points.

Ogrodnick played seven and a half seasons with Detroit, where he was an NHL First Team All-Star in 1985, after he finished fourth in league goal scoring with 55 behind only future Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri and Mike Bossy and went on to represent the Red Wings at the NHL All-Star Game on five separate occasions (1981, 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1986).

Midway through the 1986-87 season, Detroit traded Ogrodnick to the Quebec Nordiques, a team with whom he played only 45 games for before being dealt to the New York Rangers just prior to the 1987-88 season.

Ogrodnick went on to play five seasons with the Rangers, while playing a handful of games with the International Hockey League's Denver Rangers during the 1988-89 season.

Following a five-year stay in New York with the Rangers, Ogrodnick was released by the team upon the conclusion of the 1991-92 season only to sign as a free agent with Detroit during the off-season. Ogrodnick played only 20 regular season and playoff games with Detroit while playing a handful of games with the Adirondack Red Wings before calling it a career following the season.
