Does Darryl Sydor Hold the Most Unbreakable GWMHL Record?

"Hee hee. I'm famous."

In a record-breaking year that saw some of this league’s all-time greats put their names into the history books, one name went neglected.

Darryl Sydor.

The defenseman, who announced his retirement this year, has the distinction of the worst career plus-minus in the GWMHL.

In fact, so amazing was Sydor’s defensive ineptitude throughout his career that no other player is even close. His -350 puts him 158 ahead of… uh… behind… former teammate Frantisek Kaberle.

Sydor’s statistical dominance is virtually unchallengeable.

Sydor’s GWMHL career ended this year with that ultimate indignity – being released by the Oregon Rugrats at mid-season. Fortunately, the Rugrats’ Nick Boynton and Matt Cullen have the worst career plus-minus numbers of all active players, so there’s something for fans to cheer for.

What were those relocation rumors again?

Worst Career Plus-Minus

Darryl Sydor      -350
Frantisek Kaberle -192
Nick Boynton      -183
Darcy Tucker      -183
Matt Cullen       -166
