Lawrence William Sacharuk (born September 16, 1952 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played 151 games in the National Hockey League for the New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues. He would also play 15 games in the World Hockey Association with the Indianapolis Racers. Sacharuk was drafted by the New York Rangers in round 2, going as the 21st pick in the 1972 NHL Amateur Draft. He was noted for one of the hardest shots in hockey, and still holds the record as a defenceman, scoring 50 goals in any league of major junior or professional hockey. He scored these 50 goals in 65 games while playing with the Saskatoon Blades in the Western Canada Hockey League WCHL in 1971-72. This feat has not been repeated.
He is the current head coach of the Serie A team Sport Ghiaccio Pontebba.
