While the culture of the NHL may discourage players from showing individuality, that doesn't always stop players from doing so. With that in mind, here is a look at the 10 biggest oddballs in the NHL over the last decade.
Keep in mind that being an "oddball" is not necessarily a good or bad thing. It just means that this hockey personality is "different" from most in the hockey community.
A person could be on this list for a routine he has, the way he dresses, the way he behaves, a habit he may have picked up along the way or for any number of reasons.
Also, keep in mind that this list is limited to the past decade, so the person in question must have played, coached or been associated with the NHL from 2003 to the present.
This list is not meant to be a criticism of these people and is primarily for fun. Feel free to add any "oddballs" you think I may have missed and indicate why they belong on the list.
