VILLIANS

The Star Wars movies had some great villains, but not all of them had red lightsabers and space magic. Some were just downright evil in their own rights.

Jabba the Hutt- James Reimer

Now, most of the time being compared to Jabba the Hutt is an insult. But let’s give the big space slug some credit, he was a gangster with a whole squad. He got things done. James Reimer gets things done in net and sometimes it feels like he is bigger than he is as he fills the net and stops all pucks.

Grand Moff Tarkin- Brock McGinn

Moff Tarkin was absolutely ruthless. This dude has the biggest kill count in the whole trilogy. Forget Vader, who Tarkin had on a leash, Tarkin destroyed a whole planet and made Leia watch him kill her entire family with a single sentence.  But in the end, Tarkin left us all desiring more. McGinn had the most important goal of last year’s playoff run and left us all desiring more.

“You may fire when ready.”

Admiral Motti- Ryan Dzingel

Who the heck is Admiral Motti? Well, he is the one who got a neck hug from Darth Vader from across the room for being a little brat. He was smiling a little too much and well, he had to learn his lesson. That’s okay, Vader was having a good day and let him live. Dzingel is equally a dastardly smiling weirdo, but like Motti, way too valuable to let go.
