The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is known for its skilled players and butterfly style goalies. But every once in a while, it puts out a bonafide tough guy. That was the case in 1988 when left winger Claude Boivin was drafted in the first round, in that year's entry draft. Boivin had 309 penalty minutes in 59 games with Laval in 1989-90 and began his pro career with the Hershey Bears of the AHL. He got his first taste of NHL hockey in 1991-92 playing 58 games in Philadelphia. After a playing parts of a couple of seasons in Philly, Claude moved on to the Ottawa Senators in 1993. He only managed to play in 18 games over 2 seasons for the Senators and found himself shuttling between the AHL, IHL and ECHL. He ended his professional hockey career in 1999-00 with the Long Beach Ice Dogs of the International Hockey League.
