Ashby played 188 career NHL games, scoring 40 goals, 56 assists and 96 points. He was drafted sixth overall by the Maple Leafs in the 1975 NHL Amateur Draft.

The vehicle that they were driving was hit head-on by a pick up truck and Ashby died a few hours later from massive internal injuries, in the hospital in Kelowna, British Columbia.
