Left winger Danny Schock was born in Terrance Bay, Ontario on December 30, 1948. Selected 12th overall by the Bruins in the 1968 NHL Draft, Schock was a standout for the Estevan Bruins and a solid minor-league performer for the Oklahoma City Blazers and Salt Lake Golden Eagles.

Schock is most widely known as being one the players the Flyers acquired from the Boston Bruins on January 31, 1971 in in the three-way trade that brought Rick MacLeish's rights to Philadelphia and sent Bernie Parent to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Prior to being traded to the Flyers, the 5-foot-11, 180-pound forward appeared in one Stanley Cup playoff game (1970) for the eventual champion Bruins plus six regular season games for Boston the next year. Schock, a left winger, then dressed in 14 games for the Flyers after the trade, scoring one goal and assisting on two others.

Schock played several seasons for the Flyers' then-affiliate in the American Hockey League, the Richmond Robins. His best season came in 1972-73, when he racked up 48 goals and 84 points in 74 regular season games and then posted four points in as many Calder Cup playoff matches.
