Hailing from one of the great families in hockey, Dennis Hextall is the son of Hall of Famer Bryan Hextall, Sr., the brother of Bryan Hextall, Jr., and the uncle of Conn Smythe and Vezina Trophy winning goalie Ron Hextall. The North Stars rescued him from the California Golden Seals in 1971, and his three full seasons in Bloomington were the three best of his fine career as he averaged about 80 points and 140 penalty minutes per season.
