Seen as a gritty type player, Corson wasn’t afraid to throw his weight around. But he could also pot some goals. In 1989-90, he had 31 goals and 75 points.

Corson would shine in the playoffs. When the Habs went to the postseason in 1991, he had 9 goals in 13 games.

A first-round pick by the Habs (8th overall), Corson made the all-star team three times and became a leader of any team he played for. He also played for Canada at the World Juniors, World Cup, the Canada Cup and the Olympics.

Corson ended up with more than 400 goals and almost 700 points in his NHL career.
