Gino | Person | Vancouverites love their unlikely heroes, and former Canuck Gino Odjick is no exception. With 2,567 penalty minutes in 605 games, Gino, “the Algonquin Enforcer”, even played on the same line as his best bud, Pavel Bure. As well as fighting for native rights, Odjick has also fought a very public mental health battle.
