Bio

Leo Boivin Bio

Boivin's hockey career began when he skated on the St. Lawrence River as a boy and led him all the way to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He became one of the hardest-hitting defensemen in NHL history, an amazing accomplishment considering that he stood 5-foot-8 and weighed no more than 183 pounds during his 19 seasons in the League.

The native of Prescott, Ontario, was known for his explosive hits that broke up rushes and left bruises on opposing attackers while he skated away with the puck. Tim Horton, a fellow Hall of Fame defenseman who was also known for making life miserable for forwards, said Boivin was the toughest defenseman in the NHL to beat 1-on-1.
