Career[edit]

Mann was selected by the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, this pick was the first pick in franchise history. Mann made a reputation for himself as a brawler collecting 287 penalty minutes during his first NHL season. Mann was suspended three games and fined $500 for shoving a linesman, Gord Broseker, while trying to resume a fight with defenseman John Gibson in a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on December 9, 1981.[1] During a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 13, 1982 Penguins center Paul Gardner cross-checked Jets winger Doug Smail in the face resulting in an injury. Before the next faceoff, Mann attacked Gardner from behind with two punches that broke Gardner's jaw. Mann eventually received a ten-game suspension and a criminal record with a $500 fine before the courts of Manitoba.[2] Mann missed the entire 1986–87 season recovering from abdominal injury originally suffered in December 1984.
