9 Most Badass Enforcers In NHL History

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tie Domi averaged 3.44 penalty minutes per game for his career, a rate with ranks as the 5th highest in the modern era. He’s also 3rd on the list of career penalty minutes, and 14th on the list of highest single-season PIM totals (365 in 1997-98). If you could measure NHL enforcers on penalty minutes alone (you cannot), this Toronto fan-favorite would be much higher on the list. Domi was never the most feared fighter in the NHL but, always willing to throw an elbow or sucker punch (see video) behind the play, he was certainly one of the most dangerous.
