NHL 142 43 NHL's Tough Guy Tracker 25227065 Tough it out Tough+it+out NHL WAM! BAM! Thank you man!

The NHL season is in full swing and so are the league's tough guys.

An NHL tough guy isn't necessarily someone who goes out and beats the snot out of an opponent every night. Sure, goons like that still exist in the league, but an NHL tough guy is more than that. He is a player who will not only stand up for himself and/or his teammates, but will also play through and dish out pain or a game-changing check whenever his team needs him to do so.

Each Wednesday, FOXSports.com's NHL Tough Guy Tracker will spotlight those players and some of the best scraps from around the league. — Punch Imback
