Kent Carlson was the guy. One of those American guys that seemed to appear every year during the early 80's. Tough kid.
Gary Connelly was the tough guy on the 1968 - 69 Junior Canadiens but he never played in the NHL.
Cam Connor played a bit in the 1970's big but not a fighter. Scored an OT goal against Toronto in 1979.
