It's not easy to come up with a list of the 15 most fearless hockey players in NHL history.
Let's face it, hockey players are supposed to be fearless or pretty close to it. If you're not fearless, well, the Ice Capades are on the other side of town.
So in compiling this list, I tried to do something a little different. I looked for 15 players who showed a particular kind of fearlessness, whether it be their style of play, overcoming tough obstacles or even a play or event that just made them stand apart from their peers. Sustained fearlessness over a career can also help get a player on this list.
So, keeping these criteria in mind, here is my list of the 15 most fearless players in hockey history.
Feel free to comment or name some other deserving players that you feel belong on this list. Discussion, as always, is part of the fun.
