Clifford has provided a physical presence throughout his NHL career, first for the Los Angeles Kings and later for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Kings' second-round pick (No. 35) in the 2009 NHL Draft did lead the team in penalty minutes in each of his first five seasons in the League. And the Ayr, Ontario, native's 141 penalty minutes in his rookie season of 2010-11 were the most by a first-year Kings player since Steve McKenna (150) in 1997-98. The 6-foot-2 left wing plays a physical style that generates a lot of contact -- he had at least 111 hits in each of his first 10 NHL seasons.
