December 22, 2015 8:55 am by Chris Taylor

In this week’s edition of ‘Tough Guy Tuesday’ we feature legendary NHL enforcer Dave ‘Tiger’ Williams.

Williams may be best known as the NHL’s all-time penalty minutes leader, but the native of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Canada could also play some hockey.

The 5-foot-11 winger began his NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1974 and retired as a Hartford Whaler in 1988. In between ‘Tiger’ also played for the Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings and Los Angeles Kings.

In 962 career NHL games, Williams accumulated an astonishing 3,966 penalty minutes, which is the most in National Hockey League history.

Williams recorded four 20-goal seasons during his NHL career. He finished with a career-total of 241 goals and 272 assists in 962 NHL regular season games.

Check out the above video of ‘Tiger” Williams fighting former Philadelphia Flyer tough guy Behn Wilson.
