The Champs: Clark Gillies

Clark Gillies

A tough guy with a scoring touch... fourth on Isles' all-time scoring list with 304 goals and 359 assists for 663 points in 872 games... tied with Duane Sutter for fifth on team's all-time penalty minutes list with 891... along with Bryan Trottier and Mike Bossy, formed one of the most potent lines of the late 1970s and early 1980s... his retired uniform (number nine) hangs from Nassau Coliseum's rafters... got the best of Boston tough Terry O'Reilly in a series of 1980 playoff bouts that helped fuel the team's march to its first Stanley Cup... played minor-league baseball with Bob Bourne... now a stockbroker who frequently appears in celebrity golf tournaments.

Here's more from Gillies on the 1979-80 and 1982-83 seasons.
