Don’t let his mustache or proclivity for fighting fool you — George Parros is a bit of an intellectual.
That’s what his college years would suggest, at least. Parros attended Princeton University for four years from 1999 to 2003.
There, he totaled 129 penalty minutes during his four seasons with the Tigers. That number pales in comparison to the 979 PIMs he’s racked up during an NHL career that has spanned nine years and four teams, however.
The 6-foot-5 winger has 1-1-2 totals with the Florida Panthers entering Thursday night, but if this whole “hockey” thing takes a turn south for him any time soon, he will certainly have a nice Ivy League education to fall back on.
