Stu Grimson

Retired NHL Enforcer

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring NHL player?

Skate, skate, and skate some more.  You cannot make it in this game without being able to skate, first and foremost.  This is the most critical thing an aspiring NHL player can focus on. 

 

What was your career highlight?

Scoring the game-tying goal in the 1995 Western Conference Finals in Game 5 against the Chicago Blackhawks when I was a Detroit Red Wing.  That goal helped us to close out that series and march on to face the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Finals that year.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

John Tonelli was a great inspiration for me growing up.  He played for the New York Islanders on some great teams.  I always admired him as being one of the hardest working athletes I had ever followed.

 

Who is the toughest enforcer you have ever faced?

Tough call.  Either Dave Brown or Bob Probert.  Both were great, great fighters...  Brownie had a left hand that hit like a thunder cloud.

 

What is your favorite quote?

"What does not kill me, makes me stronger."  - Friedrich Nietzsche 

 

What was your favorite subject in school?  Why?

Geography and Social Studies.  Enjoyed them both equally.  I liked to study different cultures and different places; I found that very interesting.
