Ronald E. "Flockey Hockey" Flockhart (born October 10, 1960 in Smithers, British Columbia) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player.

Playing careerEdit

Ron Flockhart scored over 300 NHL points in the 1980s playing mostly with the Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis Blues. After an impressive season with the Regina Pats during the 1979–80 Western Hockey League season, he was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers. While he played most of the '80–81 season with the Flyers AHL affiliate Maine Mariners team, he appeared in 14 regular season and 3 playoff games for the parent team. His best NHL season came the following year, as Flockhart averaged a point a game scoring 33 goals and assisting on another 39 for 72 points. Though he enjoyed another solid year in 1982–83 with 29 goals and 60 points in 73 games, the Flyers as a team continued to have trouble advancing in the playoffs. After a slow start at the beginning of the '83–84 season, Flockhart was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins as part of the trade that brought Rich Sutter to Philadelphia.

Flockhart spent the next two seasons playing for the Penguins and Montreal Canadiens, and in 1985–86 joined the St. Louis Blues where he tallied 22 goals and added 45 assists. It was his highest point total since his first season with the Flyers. Over the next few years, Flockhart's playing time fell with the Blues, and he ended his NHL career with a brief 4 game stint on the Boston Bruins. Although Flockhart's NHL career was at an end, his professional career continued for a few more years with SG Cortina and Bolzano HC in Italy.

Flockhart's style was often called "Flocky (or Flockey or Flockie) Hockey", for his tendency to rag the puck rather than move it quickly up ice.


RecordsEdit

  • Holds Philadelphia Flyers record for fastest two goals (8 seconds) during a game against the St. Louis Blues on December 6, 1981. The Flyers won the game 8–2.
