I noticed.



I'd forgotten he'd won the Memorial Cup. Funny seeing him as a junior again though.

• Games Played... 2nd for defensemen

• PIMs Career ... 3rd for defensemen

I didn't know he was top-3 careerwise in games played and PIMs in the regular season and in the playoffs among all defensemen, but it makes sense.

Quote:
.. during the '89 World Championships, Stevens took a skate to the face, courtesy of his boyhood idol Borje Salming, which resulted in a gash requiring 88 stitches to seal up. Ever the warrior, Stevens missed a mere game, and, wearing a protective visor, came back to score the game-winning goal against Czechoslovakia, giving Canada the silver medal.
Another trip down memory lane! I bought a Capitals shirt that year. Then he left us to go to the lousy Blues! BOOO!

Stevens retorted, "What kind of respect do I get? Just because I'm a physical player, it's O.K. to come at me and do what you want? Hey, it's a hockey game. It's not figure skating.
