Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dave Tataryn
Goalie Dave Tataryn played a couple of games with the New York Rangers in 1976-77. He was a fine amateur player in junior and university before enjoying moderate success in the minors and senior leagues.

Born in Sudbury, Ontario Tataryn was a workhorse for two seasons with the OHA's Niagara Falls Flyers. After sitting out the 1970-71 season he spent a year at the University of Toronto and three at Laurentian in his home town. In 1975-76, Tataryn made his pro debut with the WHA's Toronto Toros.

Tataryn bounced around the minors and played some senior hockey before he signed as a free agent with the Rangers. He posted a win and a loos in two appearances then spent the 1977-78 season with the senior Cambridge Hornets before hanging up his equipment.
