Guy Joseph Jean Charron (born January 24, 1949, in Verdun, Quebec) is a former professional centre. He played in the NHL from 1969 - 1981. He also coached on and off from 1990 - 2003.

Playing career[]

Originally a product of the Montreal Canadiens' system, Charron played twenty games with the Canadiens before he was traded during the middle of the 1970–71 NHL season to the Detroit Red Wings in the deal that sent Frank Mahovlich to Montreal. He played with the Red Wings until he was traded to the expansion Kansas City Scouts in 1974. Prior to the 1976–77 NHL season, Charron signed as a free agent with the Washington Capitals, where he played until he retired following the 1980–81 NHL season. Despite playing in 734 NHL regular season games, he never appeared in a single playoff game, which is a record bested only by Olli Jokinen.

He scored 221 goals and 309 assists in his NHL career.
