Professional Hockey Player. For five seasons (1969 to 1974), he played at the right-wing position in the National Hockey League with the Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues. A native of Poland, Harbaruk had a distinguishable junior hockey league career (including being a member of the Toronto Marlboros' team which captured the Memorial Cup in 1964) before he was selected by Pittsburgh during the 1969 Intra-League Draft. During his rookie season (1969-1970), he was a part of the Penguins' squad which clinched their first playoff berth in franchise history, as they reached the semi-finals (loosing the series to St. Louis). Harbaruk contributed 3 goals in 10 games played during that postseason run. In 364 career regular season NHL games, he compiled 45 goals scored with 75 assists. He would extend his career an additional two years (1975 to 1977) in the WHA and CHL, before retiring as a player. For seven years, he served as head hockey coach at Seneca College in Toronto and guided his teams to three Ontario collegiate titles. He later co-operated a sod supply company with his brother. He died from bone cancer. (bio by: C.S.)
