Hockey Player
    His jarring Cubist accent.
    With his hybrid of Finnish and English – dubbed ‘Tikkanese’ – he could befuddle players, coaches, and interviewers alike (even fellow Finn and Oiler Jari Kurri).
    He was not initially required to be an offensive player.
    At age five, he was a mascot for Jokerit, the crosstown rivals of the HIFK Helsinki club.
    He had to be a playmaker, not simply a troublemaker as some later NHL goons and pests were.
    He played all three forward positions in his career.
    His play was not affected by the infamous Wayne Gretzky trade — in fact, he had suited up for the Rangers mere hours after the trade.
    He played a key role in ending the 54-year Stanley Cup drought for the Rangers.
