NHL center who carved a niche for himself at the highest level of the sport through his physical play. He appeared in more than 70 games for the first time as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2015-2016 and racked up 208 hits and 101 penalty minutes.
A third round pick of the Montreal Canadiens in 2006, he played two more years in the WHL and two in the AHL before making his NHL debut.
In a moment indicative of the player he'd establish himself as, his first career goal was also the night of his first career Gordie Howe Hat Trick (a goal, an assist, and a fight).
He grew up in Brandon, Canada.
He and Radko Gudas (304 hits) spearheaded the Flyers' physicality in the 2015-2016 season.
