In our third look at tough and rugged players of the past and present (see links below), we present 10 more who bring a notable touch of class to their games and lives.

From 1966-79, Orr transformed the game with his speed, grace and offense from the defenseman's position, shattering scoring records. He was a ferocious checker, shot-blocker and fighter when challenged. The winner of two Stanley Cups, Orr in 1970 became the first player to earn the Hart (MVP), Norris (top defenseman), Ross (scoring) and Smythe (playoff MVP) trophies in the same season. Small wonder many consider him to be the greatest player of all time.
