Ryan Reaves has been on a warpath over the last several months to prove he is the best enforcer in the NHL. Tonight that warpath made its way through Tampa Bay in a fight against Tanner Jeannot.

The Toronto Maple Leafs brought in Ryan Reaves this summer to set the tone for their team and bring a physical presence to the lineup. As the season has gone on he has shown the value he brings more and more. Tonight he dominated yet another fight this time against Tampa Bay forward Tanner Jeannot.

Reaves and Jeannot drop the mitts!

After most fights Ryan Reaves has a fun celebration or taunt that he pulls out toward the other team. Tonight seemed to just be pure excitement and adrenaline.

Ryan Reaves fired up after taking down Tanner Jeannot in a fight. Chirps him afterward.

Despite losing his helmet during the fight Ryan Reaves took it to Tanner Jeannot and showed he will not back down from anyone.

Over the season Ryan Reaves has endeared himself to the fans. He began the year as a player many didn't see a role for. He was scratched with talks of being put on waivers. Now today he has made a connection with fans and become a key part of the locker room.

As the playoffs are set to begin Ryan Reaves will have a key role in the Maple Leafs lineup. Regardless of who they play, he will need to bring the energy and help protect his teammates throughout each game as he has done in the back half of the season.
