With his handlebar moustache, he looks like Ross "The Boss" Rhea from the movie the Goon. He's a RW, get Pelletier down there and teach that guy to skate at the NHL level. icon_lol

Agree.. he was the first character I thought of the guy from Goon.. but then realized he was actually a caricature of almost every character in the original 70's Slapshot.. lol

Yea I heard about that one.. the two guys stage a fight.. then give each other a hug (they are ex-teammates) .. and one pulls a beer can out of his gear and starts drinking at center ice.. beauty.. coulda been a scene from Slapshot. :)
