Steve Bégin is still recognized today as one of the greatest warriors of his era. The feisty forward would rack up shoulder shots at a furious pace and would never refuse to defend his teammates, in addition to always having the pedal to the metal.

Anthony Marcotte, the voice of the Laval Rocket, compared the CH's young prospect, Xavier Simoneau, to Bégin. Of course, at 5-foot-7 and 175 pounds, Simoneau is not a fighter and Steve Bégin would not have been if the opportunity to break through without a fight had presented itself.
The NHL has changed a lot in 15 years and the fighting has diminished a lot. However, it's the dog in Simoneau's game that compares to Begin. A tireless one.
A sixth-round pick in 2021, we don't know if Simoneau will ever get to play with the Habs, but if he does, it's bound to be for his hard work.
