Call him a dirty player, call him a pest, call him an antagonist. It doesn't matter what you call him because I'm sure he doesn't care. Coming to the Pens in the big Hartford trade that also sent us Ron Francis, Ulf won his only two Stanley Cups while wearing black and gold. He is even credited with the game winning, Cup winning, goal in 1991 vs. the North Stars. The Pens won that game 8-0 but with only two minutes in to the first period, Ulf scored a power play goal on Jon Casey with a wrist shot from the left point.
Ulf was a physical, seek-and-destroy type defenseman and his play showed that. He finished his career with 332 points and 2,453 penalty minutes. Because of his physicality and eventually his credit with ending Cam Neely's career (although Neely's injury was exacerbated by a degenerative disorder that wasn't diagnosed until after he retired), Ulf is constantly labeled as a dirty player and frequently appears on many Top 10 lists of "hated" players. I'm not one of his naysayers. Ulf was eventually traded to the Rangers, along with Luc Robitaille, for Sergei Zubov and Petr Nedved.
This card comes from the 1995-96 Upper Deck Be A Player set. I've shown a few from this set already before. As you can see, this was back when the lockout was in full swing and player licenses through the NHLPA was all that could be relied on for set production (hence, no logos). I love the fact that this card says "Ice Wars" because that's exactly what went on when Ulf was on the ice...a WAR!
