A defensive defenceman (he scored only 35 goals in more than 1,000 games), Harper’s main job was to keep the other teams from scoring.

Only once in his 19-year career did he ever score more than five goals (with the Detroit Red Wings in 1975-86), and his highest output with the Habs was only four in 1969-70.

But he was looked to as a leader. With the Los Angeles Kings, he served as captain for two years. He was also part of the trade that sent Marcel Dionne to the Kings.
