The New York Rangers’ Ron was a standout player.
He was chosen in 1977 and spent six seasons with the franchise in the NHL. He left an indelible mark on the New York Rangers during his time there, setting the team record for the fastest goal at the opening of a game at 9 seconds in 1980. Ron led the Rangers in goals scored with 40 during the 1981-82 season, despite suffering injuries early in his career.
Before returning to the Rangers in 1987, Ron had previously played for the Detroit Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL. He played minor league baseball after finishing his NHL career with the Los Angeles Kings. He went on to become a coach as well.
Sarah and Ron have both gone through divorces recently.
Sarah made news in 2019 when her 31-year-married spouse Todd Palin filed for divorce. Together, the former couple has five children.
From 1993 through 2016, Ron was married to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kim Alexis. He was formerly married to model Robin Bobo, with whom he had two daughters.
He joined the MSG Network as an analyst.
From 2007 through 2018, Ron served on the New York Rangers’ television broadcasts. He also appears on MSG’s Hockey Night Live! on a regular basis.
On the ice, he was noted for his long hair.
Ron had long curly hair that would blow behind him when he skated without a helmet throughout his NHL career. For a time, it was his signature look, until he decided to shorten it.
Ron dated Farrah Fawcett and thinks she was the reason the New York Rangers traded him.
On the New York Post’s podcast, he discussed how he thought the publicity surrounding his connection with the Charlie’s Angels actress harmed his career.
In 2020, he claimed on Up in the Blue Seats, «The coach had this conversation with me about staying out of Page Six, being in the sports page,’ and sure enough, I was in Page Six once again.» «It had something to do with the fact that I was photographed with Farrah… «I was traded two months later.»
