Richard Rondeau (December 18, 1921 – January 18, 1989) was an American ice hockey player. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Rondeau played his college hockey at Dartmouth College and was a member of the 1942 NCAA championship team. The team won 21 games and lost 2, while Rondeau led the nation in scoring with 45 goals and 32 assists. Dartmouth would go on to win 41 straight games over a 4-year period. Rondeau captained the 1943 team as well, and also served as coach when Coach Eddie Jeremiah entered the Navy in mid-season. He was captain again in 1944. Over his four-year college career Rondeau shattered nearly all of the school's scoring records, tallying 103 goals and 73 assists for an average 4.4 points per game. Rondeau still holds eight NCAA Collegiate Hockey records, including most goals and assists in one game (12 goals, 11 assists). Signed by The Boston Bruins, Rondeau's professional career was cut short due to an accident during military service. Rondeau played professionally in the Pacific Coast Hockey League for the San Diego Skyhawks and later the Atlantic Hockey League for the New Haven Bears prior to leaving for active duty in The Pacific. He was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985. He died in Dallas, Texas in 1989.
