The power forward is a rare species in today's NHL. With hockey evolving into a game of speed and skill, the physically gifted as well as physically imposing offensive threats are tough to find.
However, these types of players do still exist, just in a somewhat modified form. So what exactly qualifies a player as a power forward these days?
In my eyes, power forwards do it all: They score, they hit and they fight. A power forward plays as well on defense as he does on offense and is among the best competitors on the team.
The NHL may not have the Cam Neely-type power forwards of the old days, but the guys on this list represent what is left of the rare breed.
