AN AGITATOR WITH A NOSE FOR THE NET, RIGHT WINGER DARCY TUCKER COLLECTED OVER 100 PENALTY MINUTES IN HIS FIRST SEASON WITH THE CANADIENS.

A gifted scorer throughout his junior career, Darcy Tucker used his grit and determination to carve out a name for himself in the NHL. Never one to back down from an opponent despite his small stature, Tucker was always a veritable warrior on the ice.

Before making it to the NHL, the feisty forward enjoyed great success in the junior ranks with the Kamloops Blazers, winning three Memorial Cups while totaling 379 points over the course of four seasons. He was also a member of the gold medal-winning Canadian team at the 1995 World Junior Hockey Championship.

Drafted 151st overall by the Habs in the sixth round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Tucker recorded 93 points in 74 games in his first professional season with the Fredericton Canadiens, racking up 174 penalty minutes along the way. He claimed the Dudley “Red” Garrett Memorial Trophy as the AHL’s rookie of the year after his only season in the minors.

The right winger from Castor, Alberta earned a spot with Montreal the following season. Tucker contributed 20 points in 1996-97 while adding 110 penalty minutes, the third highest total on the team.

He was dealt to Tampa Bay midway through 1997-98, sent to the Lightning along with Stephane Richer and David Wilkie in a trade that brought Patrick Poulin, Mick Vukota and Igor Ulanov to the Canadiens.

Tucker established his reputation as an aggressive player who could contribute offensively over the course of the next two seasons with Tampa Bay and found himself dealt once again, this time to Toronto. He spent the next eight seasons with the Maple Leafs before joining the Colorado Avalanche in the summer of 2008 as a free agent.

Tucker is married to Shannon Corson, the sister of Shayne Corson, who also played for the Canadiens and was his teammate for three seasons in Toronto.
