If there is one thing I've learned while operating the Legends of Hockey Network, it is that Newfoundlanders are very proud of their hockey heroes, all 23 of them.
Alex Faulkner was the very first inhabitant of "the Rock" to make it into the NHL, and he has been a Newfoundland legend ever since.

He only played in 101 NHL games and scored just 15 goals, but almost daily his profile gets more page views than many of the Hall of Famers featured here.
