I'm really excited about this one. Brad Maxwell was nearing the end of his North Stars career when I discovered hockey. He was probably the toughest dude on the team, and during the 1983-84 season he broke through as an elite offensive producer as well, with career highs of 19 goals and 54 assists (as well as a career high 225 penalty minutes). He was inexplicably traded to Quebec early into the following season. After brief stints with the Maple Leafs, Canucks, and Rangers, he came back to Minnesota late in 1987 to play his final 17 games with the North Stars.
