Early-era Flyers right winger Dick Sarrazin was born on January 22, 1946 in Saint-Gabriel-de-Brandon, Quebec. Acquired from the Detroit Red Wings organization in a cash transaction on Oct. 1, 1967, Sarrazin spent the 1967-68 season and part of the following season with the AHL's Quebec Aces.

Earning his first NHL recall in the 1968-69 season, Sarrazin was a pleasant surprise for the Flyers, posting 46 points (16 goals, 30 assists) in 54 games.

Sarrazin was unable to duplicate his success the next season, and wound up back in the minor leagues for part of the 1969-70 campaign and all of 1970-71.

The following year, Sarrazin had a 28-game stint back up in the NHL with the Flyers. Sarrazin departed the organization after the 1971-72 season, signing with the WHA's New England Whalers. He retired from professional play in 1976.
