It was often said that Kevin Dineen had a nose for the net.
Dineen backed up the assertion, goal by goal, 355 times over a distinguished two-decade NHL career.
And while there were a few tap-ins, and a few more empty netters to pad the count, most of those hundreds of tallies involved equal parts skill and will.
It was said too that Dineen had a nose for trouble. For further proof, I would direct you to the 2,229 PIMs he racked up as a Whaler, Flyer, Hurricane, Senator, and Blue Jacket.
You wanna guess how he amassed that much box time?
Not for diving, that’s for sure.
