He had a few losses in his career but on balance he was a very special fighter who brought it hard. Granite chin and explosive temper.
I am about his age and grew up in Saskatoon and Thor fights I would most want to see was the multi fight series he had in juniors with Bob Gassoff. Nystrom played for Calgary and Gassoff played for Medicine Hat and I think they went at least 4 times in a short span of time. Gassoff was the WHL champ at the time and an animal in juniors but I am guessing this series would have been epic. According to one of Gassoff's brother's it was a war.
Bobby Ny was a terrific fighter and a better player. He was HOF player IMO - didnt have the regular season stats but he was unbelievable in the playoffs........the bigger the game the better Bobby played, especially in OT where he scored a number of goals including the '80 Cup winner.
With Gillies and Nystrom nobody messed with the Islanders back in the early 80's.
