Steve Larmer was never a flashy player, but he almost always got the job done. A gritty winger for the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers, Larmer reached the two basic thresholds for Hall of Fame consideration - 1,000 games played and 1,000 points. Finishing his career with just over a point-per-game average, the Peterborough, Ont. native also came through in the clutch, recording 131 playoff points. He was also starred on Canada's 1991 Canada Cup team and was a valuable member of the Rangers' 1994 championship squad.
