A diminutive (5-8, 175-pound) wrecking ball, Jonathan was a favorite of coach Don Cherry and Bruins fans for six seasons (1976-82). He was a fearless checker and hellacious fighter, often taking on such heavyweights as Dave Schultz and Moose Dupont, and winning. His most hair-raising bout was against Montreal's Pierre Bouchard on May 21, 1978. The link below is not for the faint of heart.
