Rick Raymond R. Chartraw (born July 13, 1954) is a retired American professional defenseman who played 420 games in the National Hockey League between 1974 and 1984. Selected tenth overall in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft, he was the first American drafted in the first round.

Chartraw was born in Caracas, Venezuela while his American father was employed there as an engineer. The family moved back to the United States when Rick was three, and he grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania. He learned to play hockey there before moving to Canada as a teenager to play junior hockey for the Kitchener Rangers.

Hockey career

Rick started his National Hockey League career with the Montreal Canadiens in 1975. He spent seven years in Montreal before being traded to the Los Angeles Kings. Later, he would play for the New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers. He won four Stanley Cups with the Habs (1976 to 1979) and one with the Oilers (1984). He only played 24 games, and 1 playoff game in 1984 for Edmonton, so he did not qualify for engravement on the Stanley Cup. He also played for Team USA in the 1976 Canada Cup.

He scored 28 goals and 64 assists in 420 NHL games played.
