During an NHL career that spanned 18 years, Ronning played for the Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Phoenix Coyotes, Nashville Predators, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild and New York Islanders.

In 1983–84, Ronning's draft year, he posted 136 points in 71 games, earning the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as the league's rookie of the year. Due to his small stature Cliff Ronning was 5'8",he was not drafted until the seventh round, when the St. Louis Blues picked him 134th overall.
