At 6-3 and 228 pounds, Kevin Westgarth represented a formidable opponent for NHL fisticuffs, but he was another of the usual non-stereotypical NHL enforcers. On the ice, he was a trained in the art of pugilism. Off the ice, he was an Ivy League graduate who used the 2012-13 NHL lock out to work on his legal skills as a player representative for the NHL Players Association during the negotiations. His stay with the Hurricanes was a short two years in which he scored two goals and collected 45 penalty minutes. As seemed to be the norm for Canes enforcers, Westgarth was liked and respected by fans and teammates. With the NHL fairly rapidly phasing out the old school pure enforcer role, he might be the last play ever the wear a Canes uniform in that defined role.
