Manitobans are a tough breed. Simpson is no exception.
He was never able to stay with the Devils on a permanent basis, though. Most of his stint was spent with Albany. He did
score 43 points with the River Rats in 94-95, the most he would get in any pro season, along with 268 PIMs.
After the trade to the 'Hawks, he continued to bounce around, both in the NHL and the minors, for Tampa Bay, St.
Louis, Montreal, Nashville, and Pittsburgh, his last NHL team.
He played for Rockford of the UHL during the lockout, and followed that with 2 years in Russia. He had retired after
those 2 seasons, but did attempt a comeback in 2010 with the Chicago Wolves.
