Ice Hockey Wiki

Walt Ledingham (born October 26, 1950 in Midale, Saskatchewan) was a professional ice hockey left wing who played 15 games in the National Hockey League. He played with the Chicago Black Hawks and New York Islanders.

He played junior hockey for the Weyburn Red Wings and then played for the University of Minnesota @Duluth. The Chicago Blackhawks chose him 56th overall in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft.

Ledingham turned pro in 1972-73 and played 9 games for the Hawks. However most of his first two pro seasons were spent with their farm team the Dallas Black Hawks. Chicago was deep at the left wing position and traded Ledingham to the New York Islanders in 1974 for Germain Gagnon.

He had little luck cracking the Islanders lineup and only got into six games for them in three seasons. Ledingham retired in 1977, having played in a total of 15 NHL games and scored two assists.
