Tim Kerr was like trying to stop a freight train. Weighing in at 230 pounds the enormous right winger was impossible to move. Kerr had the ability to park himself in the slot and not be budged even by the defense's best efforts.
Because he was a big player that took abuse often, Kerr was plagued with injuries that he had to continuously overcome throughout his career. His injuries included a torn ligament in his knee, and a bad shoulder that he had to have operated on five times.
When asked about his rough treatment Kerr just shrugged it off saying, "That's what the pads are for. I don't snap much. Sometimes they try to bang me from the back, but that just doesn't work"
