Playing career

A Peterborough Petes junior player who won the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the league's best defenceman in 1970, Plumb was drafted 9th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. After two seasons with the Bruins' Central Hockey League farm club Oklahoma City Blazers, he jumped to the upstart World Hockey Association Philadelphia Blazers in 1972.

In the WHA Plumb became a star, winning the Dennis A. Murphy Trophy as the WHA's best defenceman in 1977, and being selected a First or Second Team All-Star for much of the league's history.

He remained with the Blazers as they moved to Vancouver in the following season. Plumb then played for the San Diego Mariners in 1975, the Cincinnati Stingers for the following three seasons, and the New England Whalers. He then played one season in the National Hockey League with the Hartford Whalers, remaining in the organization for two more years, but playing in the AHL with the Springfield Indians.

Plumb followed his North American pro career with three seasons in Europe, 1983 with Freiburg ERC in the 2.Bundesliga, then 1984–1986 with the Fife Flyers in the British Hockey League.

Plumb was inducted into the Kingston and District Sports Hall of Fame on May 2, 2008. [1]
