Left-winger Valentine Delory played one game for the New York Rangers in 1948-49. He was a fine goal scorer in the minors, especially in the EHL.
The Toronto native played junior in the OHA with the St. Catharines Falcons and Hamilton Szabos. He then spent two years with the EHL's New York Rovers and received a one game recall to the NHL. After starting the 1949-50 season in the USHL and PCHL, Delory returned to the Rovers and led the EHL with 36 goals in 47 games. He was named to the league's first all-star team and presented the John Carlin trophy as its top scorer.
Following a year in the USHL, Delory returned to the EHL with the Boston Olympics in 1951-52. His 85 points showed he still had a flair for offensive creativity. The crafty forward retired in 1953 after playing for the EHL's Troy Uncle Sam Trojans and OHA senior A Owen Sound Mercurys.
