Ronald Lawrence "Ron" Schock (born December 19, 1943 in Chapleau, Ontario) was a National Hockey League centre from 1964 to 1978. His younger brother, Danny Schock, also played briefly in the NHL. Ron retired following 909 games, recording a total of 166 goals, 351 assists, and 517 points.

Playing CareerEdit

While playing with the St. Louis Blues, Schock attended a hockey dinner and was asked where he would least like to be traded. He responded, either the New York Rangers or Pittsburgh Penguins. Two days later he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He had a strong junior career with the Niagara Falls Flyers but did not make either the Boston Bruins or the St. Louis Blues as a regular. He was traded to the Penguins and became one of the team's stars and the team captain.

He played with the Pens until 1977 when he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. He retired in 1980.
