Tiger Williams

Forward, 1980-84

Williams was a colorful member of the Canucks team that came out of the weeds in 1982 to reach the franchise's first Stanley Cup Final, where it was dusted in four games by the dynastic New York Islanders. After arriving in Vancouver via a trade with Toronto in 1980, the pugnacious forward began adding to what would ultimately become an NHL career record total of 3,966 penalty minutes. He twice topped 340 PIM for the Canucks, but he could also score, as his 35 goals in 1980-81 attest, and his celebrations (such as riding his stick) were legendary.
