Gary Suter had a Calder trophy and Stanley Cup on his resume from his days with the Calgary Flames when he arrived in Chicago in the early 90′s.  Suter was paired up with Chris Chelios and the Blackhawks instantly had one of the best defensive pairings in the NHL.

Suter and Chelios were both stellar defensive defenseman, tough as nails, and were very good on the offensive end as well.  If you think Duncan Keith can long some ice time, the tandem of Gary Suter and Chris Chelios seemed to never leave the ice during their era in Chicago which made the Hawks a strong team which included a trip to the Conference Finals in 1995.  The Hawks couldn’t get pass the Red Wings and sadly it would be the last time the Hawks would reach the Conference Finals until 2009.

Suter ended with the 4th most points ever by an American Defenseman with 844 and he was part of the last great Blackhawk team before the Dark Ages.

Here is some old highlights of Suter some good while some showing his hockey toughness.
