Anthony Twist (born May 9, 1968 in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada) is a former professional ice hockey player. He played left wing in the NHL for the St. Louis Blues and Quebec Nordiques, but was also a feared enforcer. He now is a co-host in post-game shows after Blues games on KPLR-TV. Twist recently penned a foreword to the Ross Bernstein book The Code: The Unwritten Rules Of Fighting And Retaliation In The NHL.

Playing career Edit

He was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the ninth round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, #177 overall. After skating with the Blues for the 1989–1990 season, he played four seasons with the Quebec Nordiques (later relocated to Colorado]). He became a free agent in 1994 and returned to the Blues, playing there until July 1999, when he broke his pelvis in a motorcycle accident in St. Louis and was unable to resume his NHL career.

He scored his first NHL goal in his sixth season against the Vancouver Canucks. It was in the first game of the season. He spent most of his time with the Blues as the protector of Brett Hull. Despite his relatively short career, he was one of the most feared enforcers to ever play the game. Known for his devastating punches, he battered many of the league's top enforcers during his career.
