Team Canada # 21
Stan Mikita is one of the best NHL forwards in the history of the game. He had a remarkable scoring ability and was a fierce competitor on the Chicago Black Hawks team in the pre-expansion era. After several successful years he reversed hockey style from the one of a mean fighter spending a tons of time in the penalty box to a Lady Byng Trophy winner for the most gentelmanly play in the NHL. According to hockey experts, Mikita was the first player in the hockey history to use a curved blade on his stick.
