Prior to ever playing a game in the NHL, Steve Downie didn't have the best reputation. His junior team, the Windsor Spitfires, suspended him for five games for a hazing incident that ultimately led to him being traded. His first professional experience didn't get off to a good start either. Downie was suspended for 20 games for charging Ottawa Senators forward Dean McAmmond during a pre-season game. Two years later, with the Tampa Bay Lightning organization, Downie has issued another 20-game ban for slashing a linesman in the AHL. Since becoming an NHL regular, Downie has been on his best behaviour - at least for now.
