Contest rules & regulations

Tiger Williams

He rode his stick after scoring and rode his fists to become the NHL’s all-time leader in penalty minutes with 3,966, 401 more than Dale Hunter in second. Tiger was an all-world baller who didn’t think twice about throwing down.

Jack McIlhargey

Old school tough, back when anything went come fight time, Jack Mack was so fast with the fists that announcers had trouble keeping up when he pummeled an opponent.

Gino Odjick

Vancouver’s franchise leader in penalty minutes with 2,217. In 1996-97, Odjick averaged 5.3 PMs a game and finished the year with 371, that’s more than Daniel Sedin has in 10 seasons with the Canucks.

Orland Kurtenbach

“Big Kurt” was legendary for being tough as nails and just as stubborn, a true brute who was the dominant policeman of the 1960s. Kurtenbach was a feared fighter with thunderous fists.

Donald Brashear

Brashear fights were not for the faint of heart. This gladiator strong bohemian handed out pain a punch at a time; put YouTube to work and check out some of his classic bouts. Brashear vs. Domi is classic.
