Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marc Moro
Defenseman Marc Moro played his minor-league hockey in Mississauga, Ontario just west of Toronto and was always known for his hard-nosed, rugged style of play. In 1993-94 he made the jump to the OHL, playing 43 games with the Kingston Frontenacs. He saw limited duty in that first season but it was good experience for year two, when he took a regular shift in 64 games for the club. His 255 minutes in penalties was well over 100 more than the next closest penalized player on the squad.

Although he was not overly gifted with offensive skills, scouts liked his tenacity and willingness to stand up for teammates. The Ottawa Senators, in need of rugged defensemen, selected Moro in the second round, 27th overall in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He played another year-and-a-half in Kingston before being traded to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds midway through the1996-97 campaign.

By the time he was set to turn pro, Moro's rights had already been traded to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in a deal that also sent Ted Drury to California in exchange for Jason York and Shaun Van Allen. Moro played just one game with Anaheim during his two years with the organization before being traded to the Nashville Predators with Chris Mason for goaltender Dominic Roussel at the start of the 1998-99 season. However, Moro saw limited duty with the Predators and spent the majority of his time in the IHL with the Milwaukee Admirals, where he was named team captain for the 1999-00 season.

In 2001-02 Moro was called up to the Predators as an injury replacement for 12 games before being released. The Toronto Maple Leafs claimed him off the waiver wire and he suited up for three games in a Leaf uniform but spent the balance of his season with their minor-league affiliate in St. John's.
