Bob Nystrom

Born in Sweden, his New York Islander teammates nicknamed him "Thor"; fans came to call him "Mr. Islander" as the right wing developed a knack for scoring overtime winners and played a key role in the Islanders winning four straight Stanley Cups from 1980 to 1983. The Islanders have retired his number and created the Bob Nystrom Award in gratitude. (Bruce Bennett/Getty Images/LIFE.com)
