Dirtiest Hockey Players

The Top Ten

1 Sean Avery Sean Avery Sean Christopher Avery is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player for the National Hockey League.

He frikin kills every flipping hockey player every single game he ever played, espesialy against the Penguins, AND ESPESIALY MARIO LEMIEUX!

God I hate Sean Avery. Why can't he just leave Martin Brodeur alone?! What did he ever do to you, Sean Avery? LEAVE HIM ALONE!

I wish Sean Avery wasn't allowed to play hockey.
He is a true jerk. - Ajkloth

Guys a douche bag loser

2 Claude Lemieux

He's the worst player ever

3 Tie Domi
4 Todd Bertuzzi

The hit on Dominic Moore's brother is unforgivable... Also, why isn't Scott Stevens on here?

Don't even consider him a player.
He's a criminal and should be in prison.
Do you believe this douche bag had the balls to cry about how hard life was for him after he violently attacked Moore?! Humanity feels really bad for you.

One of the few dirty players I hate along with Chris simon - PinkLemonade

Now he's just looking for a place 2 go.

6 Sidney Crosby Sidney Crosby Sidney Patrick Crosby ONS (born August 7, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who currently serves as captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League.

He gets away with everything. He is the leader should set a better example for hianteam

No stats to back up being a dirty player because of special treatment by the NHL. He definitely deserves to be high on this list, with the bad behavior more prevalent when is team is getting blown out.

Dirty player who never gets penalized for his infractions

I don't understand Crosby being on this list. Haven't seen him going after people. Hating him doesn't make him a dirty player.

Has anyone ever watched his highlight reels on YouTube? He is the cheapest player on this list. How is Rebiero on here? Makes no sense at all to me!

8 Milan Lucic

He is an all around jerk!

Cheapshot goons typical spoilers

Everybody sees him as the next cam neely, but he can't even carry neely's hockey bag. As a habs fan I respected Neely because he was a hard hitter, but a clean hockey player. Lucic is a an embarrasment to the bruins orginization. Picks his fights, cheap shots, besides the fact that he's playing with their top center. Overrated and dirty!

His girlfriend mcdiver is a bitch

9 Darcy Tucker


10 Wayne Simmonds

A top notch thug who fits in well with the dirtiest team in the NHL. He sells tickets because the ignorant philly fan base hungers for this garbage. No question that he is the dirtiest in the league with obvious intent to injure the real athletes.

How did your 2016 season end Wayne? Flushed it down the toilet, didn't you? That's too bad. Oh well, there's always next year. In the mean time, sit back, relax and watch the clean, athletic playoff teams. Funny how that worked out, huh?

Hey Wayne, why not just sit in the stands and throw beer bottles at the players you can't out play?

Most definitely dirty. Always taking cheap shots after the whistle.

The Contenders

11 Marty Mcsorley
12 Dale Hunter

The fact he's not in the top 3 tells you how horrible this list really is.

13 Brad Marchand

Cheap idiot who slashes people's balls.

14 Sergei Kostitsyn
15 Scott Stevens

He's a hall of famer - Sabbath

Straight up head hunter. Yea.. let's celebrate this goon. Not true hockey, psycho punk!

People hail him as a hard hitter, but look carefully and you'll see that many of his victims never saw him coming. Where I come from that's a cheap shot, cowards hit when your not looking. Dirty cheap shot artist. Period.

Nothing but elbows to heads. That hit he put on Lindros would've gotten 25-50 games suspension today. Dirties player of all time and people actually act like he believe he belongs in the hall of fame. Bs.

16 Chris Simon

So many suspensions... The NHL just gave up on him. He has to play in the russian KHL - VADERtheIMPALER

17 Scott Hartnell

A hole deluxe

18 Derek Boogaard
19 Craig Berube
20 David Williams
21 Bob Probert
22 Matt Cooke

Ended Marc Savards career with a blind sided elbow to the head, and cut Eric karrolsons heal open with his skate

23 Tom Wilson

His only talent is hurting people. Can't seem to stop delivering checks to the head.

24 Raffi Torres
25 Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Mikhailovich "Alex" Ovechkin is a Russian professional ice hockey winger and captain of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

Crosby wanna be.

Acts like the best player in the world but cheap shots consistently. Real douchebag

26 Ulf Samuelsson
27 P.K. Subban

Dude tries to fight people every five minutes. Glad the preds lost the stanley cup - CameronBinder

28 Trevor Gillies
29 Ken Linseman

Clearly there are a lot of young hockey fans on this site, if you failed to mention the ORIGINAL RAT! And yes his name was merited! Look him up!

30 Zdeno Chara Zdeno Chara Zdeno Chára is a Slovak professional ice hockey defenseman, currently serving as captain of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League.
31 Maxime Talbot
32 Josh Gratton
33 Steve Downie
34 Michael Haley
35 Kip Brennan
36 Jeremy Yablonski
37 Dave Shultz

Dave Shultz had to be one of the most dirty hockey players of all time! He might have even been the dirtiest on the Broad Street Bullies. In his career he got a total of 2294 penalty minutes! He has been touched by the fist of god!

38 Dustin Brown
39 Patrick Kaleta
40 Henrik Zetterberg
41 Ted Lindsay
42 Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League.

Tantrum thrower who embellishes to try and get calls. Maybe not physically dirty but definitely cheap tactics. I hate that he is a great goalie otherwise.

Will go down in history as the league's biggest crybaby.

43 Rick Nash

Big man cross checks goalies in the back. Try dropping the gloves you coward!

44 Evgeny Artyukhin
45 Bobby Clarke

Just ask Valeri Kharlamov.

46 Eddie Shore
47 Dave 'Tiger' Williams
48 Bryan Marchment
