While players from years gone by – from Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull to Terry O’Reilly and Clark Gillies – have displayed the hard-nosed power forward position, this list is reserved for the men who skated during or after the label entered hockey’s vernacular:

And the definition of a power forward was born with Boston Bruins brawler-sniper Cam Neely. In the late 1980s and early ‘90s, the right winger ruled the NHL as a physical force who was a devastating bodychecker, feared fighter and skilled scorer. One of only nine NHLers to score 50 goals in 50 games – needing only 44 injury-plagued games in 1993-94 – Neely was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.

Mark Messier was a better overall player than Neely, but his days as a true power forward, on the wing, while dominant, were limited to early in his career.He spent most of his career as a center.
