LW – Dave Schultz

Speaking of intimidating forwards, you can’t go without mentioning Dave Schultz. He is the proud owner of two of the top-10 most penalty minutes in a season; including the all-time mark of 472 in 1974-75. In contrast, last year’s leader Pat Maroon led the NHL with 150 minutes. They didn’t call him “The Hammer” for nothing.

His 2,292 career penalty minutes rank only 35th in the league’s history, but hey, he played only eight seasons. During his career though, he made sure that Bobby Clarke and Bill Barber were protected. He was the ideal enforcer. If you were unlucky enough to see him on the ice, it would leave you shaking in your skates.
