Wendel Clark

HC0016One of the toughest competitors in the game, Wendel Clark signed my Team Canada Upper Deck hockey card.  This particular card was from the more recent, Canadian Tire set that was released only within Canada.

As written above, Wendel Clark was a feared warrior for his fighting abilities.  I never paid much attention to him as I do now to how hockey players play but from what I do read, he didn’t back down very easily.  In his career, he represented Team Canada on the International stage but also the Toronto Maple Leafs, Quebec Nordiques, Tampa Bay Lightning, NY Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks.  He only played no more than a season for any other team that was not the Toronto Maple Leafs, which most of us associate Wendel with.  It’s no surprise he continued to come back to the Leafs as he was originally drafted 1st overall in the 1985 NHL entry draft.

Here is a 10 min video on Wendel’s fighting highlights
