NHL career

Hardy was raised in Montreal. He played alongside Denis Savard on the Montreal Juniors hockey team where he starred before being drafted 30th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. He played 915 career NHL games, scoring 62 goals and 306 assists for 368 points while adding 1293 penalty minutes. His best offensive season was the 1984–85 season when he set career highs with 14 goals, 53 points and eight power-play goals. In the 1992–93 season Hardy went to the Stanley Cup Finals with the Los Angeles Kings (a highlight of that series is a hit on Mike Keane of the Montreal Canadiens). Retiring from the NHL as a Los Angeles King in 1994 Hardy decided to coach. He currently serves as an assistant coach for the Kings.
