Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Steve Lyon
Steve Lyon was a versatile player who could make himself useful on defence or right-wing. He dressed for three games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1976-77 and spent several years in the minors and the senior leagues.

The Toronto native was chosen 145th overall by the Minnesota North Stars in 1972 after he registered just under a point per game for the OHA's Peterborough Petes. He began his pro career in the IHL with the Saginaw Gears and Columbus Owls. His solid play on the blueline earned him a place on the league's first all-star team in 1974 and 1975.

Lyon moved up to the wing for the Owls in 1975-76 and responded with 25 goals. After signing as a free agent with the Penguins, he scored 33 times for Columbus in 1976-77 and was summoned for a three-game trial in the NHL. Lyon began the next season in the minors before joining the senior Whitby Warriors. He then pursued non-hockey interests for two years before returning to play three years of senior hockey with the Georgetown Aces. Lyon retired in 1984 after scoring 34 goals for Mohawk Valley and Virginia in the Atlantic Coast Hockey League.
