Wayne Gino Odjick, the "Algonquin Enforcer" was born on 7 September 1970 in an Algonquin Native Reserve named Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg (then River Desert Band) at Maniwaki, Quebec. He was a professional ice hockey player in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1990–91 to 2001–02.

Playing careerEdit

Gino Odjick was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the fifth round (86th overall) in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. His primary role with the Canucks was as an enforcer. For part of his time in Vancouver, he played on a line with the high scoring Pavel Bure. For the 1993–94 NHL season, Odjick had a career high of 16 goals and 13 assists for 29 points. He played in a total of 8 seasons for the Canucks from 1990–91 to 1997–98. During six of those seasons, he had over 200 penalty minutes and thrice he had over 300. His sixth season (1997–98) with over 200 penalty minutes was split between the Canucks (181 penalty minutes in 35 games) and New York Islanders (31 in 13 games).

In the 1997–98 season, Odjick was traded to the New York Islanders and played there until 1999–00 when he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. He left Philadelphia during the 2000–01 for the Montreal Canadiens. His last NHL season was with Montreal in 2001–02. He retired due to concussion from a puck hitting him in the back of the head during off-season practice.
