More About Chris Nilan
With a nickname like “Knuckles” one doesn’t have to stretch the imagination too far to figure out what this guy’s role was with his respective teams. Nilan was a classic brawler, and wasn’t afraid to take a punch to give one. He wasn’t the biggest guy around, but he wasn’t afraid to take one some huge heavyweights, including guys like Dave Brown, Basil McCrae and Dave Semenko. He was also a guy to hold a grudge, once fighting Curt Fraser of the Vancouver Canucks three times in a single game! Strangely, though he was born in Boston he spent a large portion of his career beating up Bruins. He would eventually go on to a brief stint with his hometown B’s before finishing his career where he belonged: in a Montreal Canadiens uniform.
