Bio

Pat Verbeek Bio

No other player in NHL history spent as much time celebrating goals and sitting in the penalty box as Verbeek. The native of Sarnia, Ontario, finished his 20-season NHL career with 522 goals and 2,905 penalty minutes, by far the most of any member of the League's 500-goal club. The mixture of scoring and snarl earned Verbeek the nickname "The Little Ball of Hate."

The New Jersey Devils selected Verbeek in the third round (No. 43) of the 1982 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut against the New York Rangers on March 21, 1983 and scored his first goal three nights later against the Washington Capitals.
