Ian Patrick Moran (born August 24, 1972 in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American retired professional ice hockey defenseman. Throughout his 15 year professional career, Moran played for teams such as the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Anaheim Ducks. He retired in 2008 after suffering a knee injury.
Moran grew up in Acton, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston. He attended high school at the Belmont Hill School. He then went to Boston College with a full ice hockey scholarship.
Ian Moran started his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins when he was drafted in the 6th round (107th overall) in the 1990 NHL Draft. He made his debut for the Penguins during their playoff run in the 1993-94 NHL season. In 433 career regular season games with the Penguins, Moran tallied 19 goals, 44 assists, and 281 penalty minutes in 433 games. On March 11, 2003, Moran was traded to the Boston Bruins for fourth round selection in 2003, which turned out to be Paul Bissonnette. Moran found out about the trade while playing hopscotch in his driveway with his daughter and ended up writing the phone number to the Bruins' general manager on his driveway in chalk. During the NHL lockout, Moran had spells in the Sweden's HockeyAllsvenskan for Bofors IK and the United Kingdom's Elite Ice Hockey League for the Nottingham Panthers, however he was sidelined most of the year with a knee injury. Eventually Moran signed with the Anaheim Ducks on August 15, 2006. During his time with the Ducks, Moran only managed to play one game for them as he also split the season in the American Hockey League with the Portland Pirates and in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany for Eisbären Berlin. After departing from Germany, Moran signed as an UFA with the New Jersey Devils on July 24, 2007. Moran played for the Devils’ minor league affiliate Lowell Devils and suffered another knee injury, and was never called up to play at the NHL level again. By season’s end, Moran became a free agent on July 1, 2008. Moran is unofficially retired from hockey, and has done some radio and media work since his retirement.
He currently owns and runs his own hockey skills business IM Hockey Skills out of Dedham, Massachusetts as well as, since 2017, being the head scout in New England for Neautral Zone.
He currently resides in Duxbury, Massachusetts with his wife Britta, and their four children; Mattigan (born 2000), Weston (born 2002), Luke (born 2004), and Leighton (born 2007).
