Troy Crowder, a natural born enforcer, was thrust into the fire as a 20 year old rookie during the 1988 playoffs. Two years later he was a regular for the Devils and became a cult favorite among NHL fight fans for his legendary bouts with Bob Probert. He joined Probert on the Red Wings in 1991 but appeared in only seven games before back injuries sent him into a premature retirement. (He did return to the NHL a few years later for stints with the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks.)
