Yvan “The Roadrunner” Cournoyer

If you’ve ever seen any of the Looney Toons Roadrunner cartoons, you know the eponymous speedy bird is famous for being un-catchable, leaving opponents in his dust and dropping the occasional anvil on his enemies. Yvan Cournoyer shared all the same traits – minus the anvil dropping – and so it seemed only natural that his fast-as-lightning skating and small stature led to the Conn Smythe winning forward forever being known as The Roadrunner.
