Profession: NHL Star
Why Famous: Played 13 seasons for the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins. His success stemmed largely from his hard, accurate shot, quick release, and his willingness to engage in the more physical aspects of the game.
He was as devastating with his body checks and fists as he was with his goal scoring exploits, and became the archetype of the ultimate power forward.
