Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mark Hardy
Although he was born in Europe, Mark Hardy played his junior hockey in Montreal. He was selected 30th overall in the 1979 Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. His first season was spent for the most part with the Binghampton Dusters of the AHL; however, he did make 15 appearances for the Kings. Between 1980 and 1987 he played full time in Los Angeles, posting his personal best NHL season in 1984-85, when he combined for 53 points in 78 games. In 1986, he was chosen to represent Canada at the World Championships where he tallied five points in ten games.

The 1987-88 season saw him traded to the New York Rangers for Ron Duguay midway through the season. After only 19 appearances with the Blueshirts, he was traded to Minnesota. He opened the 1988-89 season with the North Stars before heading east a second time and back into Madison Square Garden.

Again a Ranger, Hardy stayed put until March 1993, when he was traded back to his old team in L.A. in exchange for John McIntyre. In 1993-94, he divided his time between the Kings and the Phoenix Roadrunners of the IHL. He spent the rest of his playing career in the IHL and moved into coaching in that league after retiring. He returned to the NHL as an assistant coach with the L.A.. Kings during the 1999-2000 season.
