William Anthony "Bill" Derlago, (born August 25, 1958) is a retired Canadianmarker professional ice hockey player. He played in the National Hockey League from 1978 to 1987 with the Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Winnipeg Jets and Quebec Nordiques.

Career

Growing up, Derlago excelled at multiple sports, including golf, tennis, baseball, and hockey. It was hockey that garnered the most success and attention for the young Derlago, as he rewrote the WCJHL record books as a member of the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 1970s. His standout junior career led to his being selected fourth overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1978 NHL Entry Draft.

As a rookie with the Canucks in 1978–79, Derlago badly injured his knee and was limited to just 9 games, though he did score a respectable 8 points. Though he played well in Vancouver, he was unable to live up to the high expectations, and was traded to Toronto along with Rick Vaive for Tiger Williams and Jerry Butler on February 18, 1980.

In Toronto, Derlago developed into a star playmaker, working particularly well with Vaive, who was developing into a sniper. Though successful on the ice, questions were raised about Derlago's desire and self-discipline. He avoided all of the exercise regimes and extra practices that might have raised his game.

On October 11, 1985, he was traded to the Boston Bruins for Tom Fergus. In Boston, Derlago was relegated to third- and fourth-line duty as a defensive forward. After only 39 games in Boston, he was again traded, this time to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Wade Campbell. Clearly on the downside of his career, Derlago lasted only a brief time with the Jets before he was sent to the Quebec Nordiques in 1987. Eighteen games later he was demoted to the Fredericton Express of the AHL.Derlago would spend one additional season in Italymarker before announcing his retirement in 1988.

Derlago currently resides in Concord, Ontariomarker, and operates a Chrysler dealership.
