No. 4: Cody McLeod
Since 2007, Cody McLeod has been a staple in the Colorado Avalanche roster. This past season, he played in all 82 games for the Avs. He knows his role, and his effectiveness is undeniable; McLeod is a born bruiser. At 6 feet tall, 210 pounds, McLeod is by no means a giant, but his presence on the ice makes him one of the most feared players in the division. McLeod’s 1,100+ career PIMs speak for itself, as his fists often do the talking.

With a guy like McLeod on the Avalanche roster, it forces their opponents to keep their heads on a swivel, and with many fast teams in the division, it has proven effective time and time again, though he doesn’t make many fans in the process.
