B Wilson (rookie) vs Strudwick (rookie) – B Wilson
Judge’s take: I love this match up. Big Behn was only truly vulnerable as a rookie. Three of his maybe five career losses came in that rookie campaign. A young Strudwick was tough right out of the gate and made an impression with the Canucks in the late 90’s. I thought Wilson as a rookie showed the kind of poise you would see in an experienced veteran and while he might give the early rounds to the cross grip style of Strudwick, Big Behn comes up big late for the victory.
Series tied 1-1
