Peterborough selects C. Paul Ronty, who finished Top 6 in scoring 3 times in his career.

Long before he entered the pro ranks, Paul Ronty came up against his future teammate, Ed Sanford, while playing youth hockey in Toronto. Ronty skated for a team call Chewies Aces and thus received the moniker "Chew" compliments of Sanford.

By 1947, Ronty got his first crack at the Boston Bruins line-up, splitting the season between Boston and Hershey of the AHL. The following two seasons brought him full-time action with the Bruins. While centering wingers Johnny Peirson and Ken Smith, Ronty finished 5th in league scoring in 1948 and 1949, topping the 20-goal plateau on both occasions.

In 1951, he was traded to the New York Rangers where he continued to put up solid numbers as the feed man for Wally "The Garbage Collector" Hergesheimer.
