If there was a picture next to "hockey lifer" in the dictionary, there's a good chance you'd see Don Biggs.
An eighth-round pick of the Minnesota North Stars in 1983, Biggs played 12 games in the NHL, 11 with a Philadelphia Flyers team that finished last in its division in the 1989-90 season. But thanks to his toughness, leadership and an innate ability to get under the skin of other players, Biggs carved out a 17-year pro hockey career spent mostly in the American Hockey League and International Hockey League.
The highlights include winning a Calder Cup with the Hershey Bears in 1988 and serving as captain of the Cincinnati Cyclones. Despite those successes, he's still asked often (maybe too often) about serving as Patrick Swayze's stunt double in the 1986 movie "Youngblood."
