He had a striking resemblance to Brian Savage.

Met him at local rinks several times. Very unassuming, very nice guy. Damn good player as well.

Love him. It's unfortunate he had to end his career on a down note, but he gave this team reasonable discounts to stick around. Always seemed like a humble / unassuming individual from reading third-hand accounts.

Too bad he wrecked his knee, he could have been a really great player.

he scored more goals than all but 108 players in NHL history, I think that qualifies as a really great player.
