Valiquette started his National Hockey League career with the Leafs in 1974. Despite his scoring prowess, his skating was terrible. After 4 years of aub-par performance, he was traded to the Colorado Rockies in 1978.
There a simple change of skates gave his career a boost and he enjoyed 2 good years in Denver. However, a poor start to his third season (1980-81) caused the Rockies to move him down to the minors. Tired of this career, he retired after the 1980-81 season, after a seven-year career.
He played in 350 NHL games, scoring 84 goals and 134 assists.
