As you might expect, because of the era, there were limited fights so he didn't engage in many. My understanding though was he had a few scrapes, I believe John Ferguson was one. I think in the WHA he also had one with Steve Durbano.

He definitely was not a gretsky type, more of an Orr type if I was going to make a comparison.
Thats when Durby ripped his toupe off and threw it in the stands.
