The Grim Reaper

The Battle of Alberta has a neat little post about enforcer Stu Grimson, whose career was ended in 2001-02 at the hands of Georges Laraque. One of the few NHLers born in Kamloops (just like moi), Grimson kept fighting till the ripe old age of 36 and was always quite a character. Grimson sits in 40th spot on the all-time PIM leaders list.

And he was always quotable, too.

Sweet quote! Enforcers are always good for gems like that.

Stu Grimson should be close to finshing his law degree by now.

Also, while Grimson was beaten by Laraque, his last fight was actually against Sandy McCarthy, who caught Grimson with his stick up high right before they dropped the gloves. Couldn't have done Stu any good.
