Rod Brind'Amour at AllExperts (450 words)
Born in Ottawa but raised in Campbell River, British Columbia, Brind'Amour's love of hockey got him to Michigan State University where he played until he was drafted to the NHL.
Brind'Amour became well-known for working out constantly, earning the nickname "Rod the Bod." This became all the more evident due to a crazy story out of Michigan State that occurred when Brind'Amour was a sophomore there.
Brind'Amour is likely to score his 1,000th point in the 2006-07 NHL season, needing only 19 to top that milestone.
