Favorite Tie Moment – AC

My memorable moment was watching one of your fights when you played for the Winnipeg Jets, where I grew up. You did the tug boat after obliterating your heavy hitting opponent. I remember it vividly because I was young (maybe 10 years old) and I played hockey and knowing that you were smaller then your peers but still had the heart to go toe-to-toe with the other tough guys in the league gave me the confidence to play the game tough and strong. I now live in Toronto and am a huge fan of yours. You made us all very proud when you scored that goal against Ottawa to give Leaf fans a hope that we’ll win one yet against in the regular season.

Congrats on your 1000th game Tie! Here’s to 1000 more! Cheers.

PS The clip I am referring to was also in one of Don Cherry’s Rockem Sockem. It was in 92 or 93 I think.
