Never one to back down from a fight, Staubitz has 108 penalty minutes this season along with three goals and three assists in 46 games. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta has logged 12 fights over the 2009-10 regular season and a record of 4-2-6 (which includes two wins over Dallas’ Krys Barch), according to hockeyfights.com.

Staubitz became a fan favorite in 2009 when he fought Nashville’s Jordin Tootoo on March 19. In the most memorable fight of the season, Staubitz landed more than a dozen lefts on Tootoo’s face before switching to his right-handed hooks. The officials pulled the two apart while they were still on their feet and Tootoo left the game with a blood streaming from his broken nose.

But take Staubitz off the ice, and you’ll see a completely different person. For the past two years, he has joined NHL Ambassador Willie O’Ree at the Oakland Ice Center Operated by Sharks Ice as part of the Hockey Is For Everyone initiative. Alongside students from several Oakland schools and after school programs, he answered their questions, posed for pictures, skated and signed autographs.
