I think you'd wanna add Black Jack Stewart from Chicago, circa 1940's. Nasty piece of work.... King Clancy, actually several more, as hockey was really a lot more violent from 1917 through the 30's. Post WW2, we should add;

Maurice Richard
Gordie Howe
Ted Lindsay
Ted Green
Orland Kurtenbach
bunch more...

From the WHA, a guy by the name of Frank Beaton apparently quite the Holy Terror, that league stacked with some serious Wingnut Pugilists & Miscreants. Then theres the minors. Guys like John Brophy etc etc etc...
