Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ian Moran
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Ian Moran was chosen 197th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft while he was starring with Belmont Hill High School. He then accepted a scholarship to Boston College and was named the top rookie in the Hockey East conference in 1992. After spending two years with the Eagles, Moran played with the U.S. national team then turned pro with the IHL's Cleveland Lumberjacks in 1993-94.

A stay-at-home defenceman, Moran made his NHL debut with Pittsburgh during the 1995 Stanley Cup playoffs. Over the years, he became a solid defender in his own zone for one of the most offensive-minded teams in the NHL. The only downside for him was missing significant portions of two seasons due to injuries.

Moran went on to play parts of eight seasons with the Penguins before he was dealt to the Boston Bruins at the NHL trade deadline in 2003. Over two and a half seasons, Moran would only lace up for 45 games with the Bruins before signing on as a free agent with the Anaheim Ducks.

Moran would spend the majority of his time with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Portland and see action in a single game with Anaheim in 2006-07. In the off-season, he signed as a free agent with the New Jersey Devils.

On the international stage, Moran has represented his homeland at the 1991 World Junior Championships and the 1993 World Championships.
