The all-time best Bruins for each uniform number
The numbers hang from the rafters, and they spur memories of players as familiar to us as the ones on the ice today. Bobby Orr. Cam Neely. Ray Bourque. We can still see them in their Bruins uniforms, dazzling friend and foe alike with end-to-end rushes, pinpoint passes, sniper-like shot efficiency . . . and, in the case of players like Terry O'Reilly, the toughness that has long defined hockey in Boston.
That's why the numbers of the greatest of the great live forever in TD Garden.
But what about Zdenek Blatny? Doug Doull? Patrick Leahy? They wore Bruins uniforms, too. And -- like the Hall of Famers we'll never forget -- they have a unique place in B's lore: They may be the greatest players ever to wear their particular number.
Let's take a look at every number the Bruins have ever issued, and pick the best player ever to wear it. Most of the names you'll know. Some you'll have forgotten. And some (Zdenek Blatny??) . . . well, you'd have to be the biggest B's fanatic to recall.
1 – Gilles Gilbert
The Quebec native spent the best seven seasons of his career in Boston playing behind some stacked Bruins teams, and piled up 155 wins in Black and Gold. He didn’t have the best individual season wearing the No. 1 however, as that went to Pete Peeters in his Vezina Trophy-winning season in Boston.
Best of the Rest: Pete Peeters, Reggie Lemelin, Eddie Johnston
2 – Eddie Shore
Old Time Hockey. Eddie Shore. Does anything else need to be said other than being good enough to be in the screenplay for Slap Shot?
3 – Lionel Hitchman
The defenseman was sold by the Ottawa Senators to the Boston Bruins for cash in 1925, and the rest is history as they say with Hitchman’s No. 3 up in the rafters. So have the Senators been suffering from the Curse of the Hitch all along and we just didn’t even know it?
4 – Bobby Orr
With all due respect to anybody else that wore this number in a Bruins sweater, No. 4 belongs to Bobby Orr always and forever. The greatest player in NHL history and an absolute game-changing force that forever altered the way that the defensemen was played. It’s hard to think of another player in Boston sports history more associated with his number than Orr. Maybe Larry Bird at No. 33 or Tom Brady at No. 12, but it’s definitely debatable.
Best of the Rest: Bob Armstrong.
5 – Dit Clapper
A Hall of Famer and three-time Cup winner who was part of the illustrious “Dynamite Line”, one of the first lines in NHL history to earn their own name, and the first NHL player to boast a career that spanned 20 seasons. Was an All-Star at both forward and defense, which also seems pretty cool.
6 – Ted Green
He will probably always be most remembered for a bloody, awful stick fight with Wayne Maki in 1969 that left him with a fractured skull and brain damage, but Green was also a very good defenseman in his own right. Green played over 600 games for the Bruins and was an All-Star in the 1968-69 season prior to the fateful stick fight with Maki.
Best of the Rest: Dennis Wideman, Gord Kluzak, Dick Redmond.
7 – Phil Esposito
All you need to know about Hall of Famer Espo is that “Jesus Saves, Espo scores on the rebound” was a thing in the 1970s. Arguably the greatest scorer in the history of the Bruins franchise and an integral part of the two Cup teams during the Orr Era. He scored 459 goals in 625 games with the Black and Gold, and was an immovable object around the net.
Best of the Rest: Vic Stasiuk, Ed Sanford, Ray Bourque.
8 – Cam Neely
Neely was the prototypical power forward for his generation and a Hall of Famer who had his brilliant career cut short by leg injuries caused by dirty hits. Neely at his best was exactly the kind of player that Bruins fans always appreciate: Ferocious, ridiculously skilled and the kind of physical force that was not to be messed with.
Best of the Rest: Ken Hodge, Peter McNab, Lyndon Byers (just kidding).
9 – John Bucyk
The “Chief” finished with 545 goals and 1,339 points in 1,436 games over 21 seasons for the Bruins, and was a link between at least three different eras of Bruins history. He was also an amazingly consistent performer and a veteran leader on those amazing Bruins Cup teams in the early 1970s. The Hall of Famer pretty much owned the No. 9 as one of only three players to wear it over the last 70 years prior to it getting raised to the rafters.
Best of the Rest: Cal Gardner.
10 – Jean Ratelle
The Hall of Famer was 35 years old when he was traded to the Bruins along with Brad Park, but he still had plenty in the tank when he arrived in Boston. The slick, classy Ratelle finished with 155 goals and 450 points in 419 games along with a Lady Byng Trophy in that first season in Boston.
Best of the Rest: Barry Pederson, Carol Vadnais.
11 – Steve Kasper
Kasper was an excellent two-way forward throughout his Bruins career which spanned most of the 1980s, and posted 355 points in over 500 games with Boston. Kasper won a Selke Trophy while he was here and was a key player on the B’s team that got to the Cup Final in 1988.
Best of the Rest: Bill Quackenbush, Bobby Smautz, P.J. Axelsson.
12 – Wayne Cashman
Cashman played his entire 17-season career with the Bruins, played over 1,000 games and racked up 277 goals and 793 points during his career. More importantly “Cash” was on two Cup winners and is by far the player most associated with the No. 12.
Best of the Rest: Randy Burridge, Adam Oates, Brian Rolston.
13 – Ken Linseman
The Rat had some great seasons in Boston while finishing with 349 points in 372 games, and was amazing with 11 goals and 25 points in the run to the Cup Final in 1988. Linseman played hard and played well, and was nothing short of a fan favorite while totaling close to 200 goals and 800 penalty minutes in his B’s career.
Best of the Rest: Bill Guerin.
14 – Sergei Samsonov
A Calder Trophy winner at 19 years old for the Bruins, Samsonov and Joe Thornton teamed together to be a breath of fresh air in the late 1990s. The Magical Muscovite was never the same after leaving Boston, but finished with 164 goals and 376 points in 514 games for the Bruins.
Best of the Rest: Fern Flaman, Woody Dumart.
15 – Milt Schmidt
What to say about Milt? A Hall of Famer, a two-time Cup-winner, a Hart Trophy winner and multiple All-Star that served as a great player, a head coach, a general manager and a great ambassador during his long, distinguished lifetime. The player who personified the phrase “Bruins legend” rightfully has his No. 15 now sitting up in the rafters.
16 – Rick Middleton
The best Bruins player not currently in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Middleton became a game-breaking force after being traded to Boston from the Rangers. Nifty finished with 402 goals and 898 points in 881 games here and is the last B’s player to win the Lady Byng Trophy.
Best of the Rest: Derek Sanderson, Marco Sturm, Leo Labine.
17 – Milan Lucic
In an era when fighting and intimidation were down all around the NHL, Lucic was a throwback power forward who could score goals, throw haymakers and change momentum with his physicality. His key role on the 2011 Cup team and his punishing body check on Mike Van Ryn that shattered the glass above the boards will long be remembered in Boston.
Best of the Rest: Fred Stanfield, Don McKenney, Stan Jonathan.
18 – Keith Crowder
A versatile right wing who put up big numbers in his best years with the Bruins, Crowder finished with 219 goals and 477 points in 607 games over nine seasons here. Crowder was on the downside as the Bruins teams got better at the end of the 1980s, but he was a staple in Black and Gold for most of that decade.
Best of the Rest: Ed Westfall, Nathan Horton.
19 – Joe Thornton
Clearly, the best part of Jumbo Joe’s career happened in San Jose rather than Boston, but he still posted 169 goals and 454 points in 532 games for the B's. The trade that sent him to San Jose for Brad Stuart, Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau will go down in Bruins infamy.
Best of the Rest: Johnny “Pie” McKenzie, Gregg Sheppard, Tyler Seguin.
20 – Dallas Smith
Smith was a stalwart defenseman for the Bruins, playing in over 800 games, appearing in four All-Star games and forming an incredible D-men tandem with Bobby Orr when at his best. As with most D-men, the stats don’t tell the story of how solid Smith really was in his heyday.
Best of the Rest: Leo Boivin, Mike O’Connell.
21 – Don Marcotte
A solid left wing who played 868 NHL games, all for the Bruins, and finished with 230 goals and 484 points over 13 full seasons. The No. 21 has had some pretty darn good players wear it over the years.
Best of the Rest: Jerry Toppazzini, Ted Donato, Andrew Ference.
22 – Brad Park
One of the best D-men to ever wear a Bruins uniform (and that’s saying something in the Original Six franchise’s history), Park had 100 goals and 417 points in 501 games after being traded over from the New York Rangers. He finished second in Norris Trophy voting an amazing eight times in his career while never winning the Trophy, which seems crazy given how good Park was on the back end.
Best of the Rest: Willie O’Ree.
23 – Steve Heinze
The Massachusetts native played in over 500 games in a Bruins uniform, and finished with 131 goals and 239 points in a Bruins sweater after a great career at Boston College. Heinze memorably jumped into the pros at the end of the 1991-92 season with the Bruins immediately after a stint with Team USA at the Olympics. His time with the Bruins ended when he was plucked by the Columbus Blue Jackets in their expansion draft.
Best of the Rest: John Pierson, Craig Janney.
24 – Terry O’Reilly
The Tasmanian Devil was a tough, high-effort player who turned into a fan favorite given his style of play, and was a damned good power forward in the Bruins mold. O’Reilly finished with 204 goals and 606 points in 891 games spanning 13 seasons all with the Bruins, and topped 2,000 penalty minutes as well.
Best of the Rest: Don Cherry.
25 – Gary Doak
Doak had two different long and distinguished stints with the Bruins, was a contributing part of the Cup-winning team in 1970. When it was all said and done, Doak played over 600 games in a Bruins uniform and finished a plus-110 during his time in Boston.
Best of the Rest: Hal Gill.
26 – Mike Milbury
Milbury was a tough customer in Black and Gold, but the current NBC Sports TV guy was also a pretty good defenseman during the 1970s and early '80s when the Bruins were pushing other teams all over the ice. In all, Milbury played 754 games in a Boston uniform and is remembered as a fiery competitor that once crowned an unruly Rangers fan with his own shoe.
Best of the Rest: Don Awrey, Glen Wesley.
27 – Glen Murray
Muzz was another B’s player who had two different stints with the Black and Gold, but was a bona fide goal-scorer that finished with over 200 goals and almost 400 points in his 570 career games here. Murray and Jumbo Joe Thornton made a darn good combo for the Bruins in the early 2000s.
Best of the Rest: Derek Sanderson.
28 – Mark Recchi
The Hall of Famer and three-time Cup winner was at the end of his NHL career when he arrived in Boston, but he was also the final, irreplaceable piece that helped show a young team how to win in 2011. It’s amazing to think how much of an impact Rex had as a player even though he didn’t arrive in Boston until after his 40th birthday.
Best of the Rest: Garry Galley.
29 – Jay Miller
The tough, gregarious Miller amassed over 800 penalty minutes in his career with the Bruins and managed to chip in 13 goals and 33 points in his 216 games here. He was one of the toughest hombres of his era in the NHL, and a hard-working player that Bruins fans loved to watch do his thing.
30 – Gerry Cheevers
It’s one of the toughest choices on the list between Cheevers, a Hall of Famer who backstopped the great Bobby Orr teams in the 1970s, and Tim Thomas, a pivotal figure on the 2011 Stanley Cup team. Cheevers gets the nod because of his overall excellent career, but it’s not easy to top Thomas in 2011. He led the Bruins to a Cup with one of the best goaltending seasons ever in the history of the NHL.
Best of the Rest: Tim Thomas.
31 – Doug Keans
One of the best waiver pick-ups in team history, Keans was an excellent backup goalie in the mid-1980s; he actually tossed a couple of shutouts and finished in the Vezina voting in his first season in Boston. In all, he finished 83-46-13 in his career with the Bruins over five seasons.
32 – Don Sweeney
Sweeney wasn’t ever the best defensemen on his Bruins teams, but his productivity and longevity was really impressive given his lack of size in an era when most D-men were massive. The Harvard standout played over 1,000 games for the Bruins while finishing with 262 points and a career plus-90 mark, and now runs the team as general manager.
Best of the Rest: Craig MacTavish.
33 – Zdeno Chara
The 6-foot-9 captain led the Bruins to a Stanley Cup in 2011, won a Norris Trophy, really marked the turnaround of the franchise when he signed in 2006 as a free agent and was the best defensive defenseman of his generation. The numbers are really piling up for the future Hall of Famer as well: 138 goals and 453 points in 893 career games here.
34 – Byron Dafoe
It wasn’t a long run, but Lord Byron had one of the great five-year stretches between the pipes with the Bruins. He led the NHL with a whopping 10 shutouts in 1998-99 and won 132 games over a five-year span here. Strangely enough, he was very ordinary with the Kings prior to coming to Boston, and was out of the NHL after a couple of seasons in Atlanta following his stint with the B’s.
35 – Andy Moog
He formed one of the all-time great goalie tandems in B’s history with Reggie Lemelin, had a couple of All-Star seasons in Boston and won the Jennings Trophy in 1990 while helping guide the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Final. The 136-75-36 career record over six seasons in Boston was pretty darn good.
36 – Dave Reid
Reid had two different stints with the Bruins, and finished with 89 goals and 181 points in 387 games here over his career. His best season in the NHL came with the B’s in 1995-96 when he posted 21 goals and 44 points, and garnered some Selke Trophy votes for his defensive work as well.
37 – Patrice Bergeron
One of the all-time great Bruins and still writing his career biography after entering the NHL as an 18-year-old, winning a Cup in 2011 and becoming one of the best players in the league while racking up Selke Trophies. His 289 goals and 734 points in 963 games -- and counting -- should put Bergeron very squarely in the Hall of Fame conversation when all is said and done.
38 – Vladimir Ruzicka
Not much to choose from here, but Rosie had did have a season where he posted 37 goals and 75 points for the Bruins before quickly disappearing from the scene. Despite the good offensive numbers, he was also a career minus-15 which probably explains why he didn’t remain in the NHL for very long.
39 – Greg Johnston
Johnston had a couple of decent seasons for the Bruins in the mid-1980s and finished with 26 goals and 54 points in 183 career games here over his career. Clearly the B’s are still looking for their first great No. 39 in franchise history.
40 – Tuukka Rask
Rask is an All-Star goalie and a Vezina Trophy winner and his career numbers stack up very respectably with the best of goalies in Bruins history. His 238-137-53 career record and 41 career shutouts in nine seasons speak to how well the Finnish netminder has played.
41 – Jason Allison
Jason Allison had a couple of great seasons with the Bruins in the prime of his career, and finished with 105 goals and 294 points in 301 games over five years here. A number of injuries eventually had the big center out of the NHL at 31 years old, but Allison was at his best during his time with the Bruins.
42 – Bob Sweeney
Swoop was a contributing member of both Cup Final teams in 1988 and 1990, and finished with 81 goals and 193 points in 382 games over six seasons with the Black and Gold. He was also one of about 12 guys named Sweeney who played for the Bruins in the mid-1980s, which makes plenty of sense for a Boston hockey club.
43 – Danton Heinen
Heinen had 16 goals and 47 points as a rookie in 2017-18 and automatically became the best player to ever don the No. 43. Things should just keep getting better for Heinen, who has all the skills after starring for the University of Denver as a collegiate player.
44 – Dennis Seidenberg
The German-born Seidenberg was a defensive warrior for the Bruins, and formed a devastating shutdown pairing with Zdeno Chara during the 2011 postseason on Boston’s run to the Cup. The offensive numbers were never the story for Seidenberg, who was a tough, shot-blocking defensive warrior in the D-zone.
Best of the Rest: Nick Boynton.
45 – Mark Stuart
Stuart never quite lived up to his billing as a first-round pick, but he still played 283 games for the Bruins as a hard-nosed, hard-hitting stay-at-home defenseman. His trade, with Blake Wheeler, to the Atlanta Thrashers for Rich Peverley paved the way for the B’s Cup win in 2011.
46 – David Krejci
A key part of Boston’s current run of good teams, Krejci was also the league’s leading scorer in both of the playoff runs where the Bruins ended up making it to the Stanley Cup Final. A playmaker and a big game player, Krejci has 174 goals and 570 points in 769 games over 11 seasons as a frontline center for Boston.
47 – Torey Krug
A puck-moving D-man and power play maestro, Krug has 52 goals and 235 points in 398 games for the Bruins while putting up back-to-back 50 point seasons. It’s an impressive career thus far for an undersized Michigan State D-man who went undrafted and signed as a free agent after his collegiate career.
48 – Matt Hunwick
Hunwick has played over 500 games at the NHL level but probably had his best seasons with the Bruins, showing good offensive skills as a young player just out of the University of Michigan. The 13 goals and 45 points in 164 career games were pretty solid numbers before he got traded to Colorado for Colby Cohen.
49 – Joe Juneau
In his first full season with the Bruins, Juneau had 32 goals and 102 points while cracking the NHL’s All-Rookie team. Juneau never matched that kind of production again in his NHL career and was shipped to Washington in a disastrous deal for Al Iafrate just one season later.
50 – Jonas Gustavsson
The Monster went 20-11-9 with a .908 save percentage in his one and only season with the Bruins, which shows you that they’re going to need another goalie or two to pick the No. 50 in the future.
51 – Ryan Spooner
The speedy, playmaking Spooner had 41 goals and 142 points in 253 games for the Bruins while providing skating speed, offense and power-play ability off the half-wall. He never quite lived up to his potential while with the Bruins, but he was also never really a good fit for Claude Julien’s system either. Either way he’s the best No. 51 in B’s history.
52 – Sean Kuraly
Kuraly has six goals and 15 points in 83 career games for the Bruins as a bottom-6 center, and also some of the best celebrations in the business when he does score a goal. With a new three-year deal on tow, Kuraly is just scratching the surface of what he’ll do.
53 – Jeremy Reich
The hard-nosed Reich played 90 games for the Bruins as a fourth line forward willing to play with high energy and physicality. The two goals and five points he added in that time span were just a bonus.
54 – Adam McQuaid
Darth Quaider is a Stanley Cup champion with the Bruins, and one of the toughest players in the league while also being one of the nicest guys off the ice. McQuaid is a shot-blocker and an effective stay-at-home warrior, but his ability to defend his teammates with a well-timed fight is something that stands out in a largely non-fighting era.
55 – Johnny Boychuk
The Bruins learned just how valuable Boychuk was when things fell apart a bit after he was traded away. The likable, tough D-man was a key player as Zdeno Chara’s partner during most of his years in Boston, and had the ability to change games with his hard hits and big, booming shot.
56 – Doug Doull
Doull was the classic short-term fighter in the NHL in the mid-2000’s while doing it on a bad Bruins team. He finished with 132 penalty minutes in 35 games, one assist and four shots on net while averaging less than three minutes of ice time per game.
57 – P.J. Axelsson
The original number for P.J. Axelsson as a rookie out of Sweden before he switched over to the No. 11 that he wore for most of his career. Axelsson finished with 103 goals and 287 points in 797 games and was a great checking line winger/penalty killer throughout his career in Boston.
58 – Kevin Dallman
Defenseman Kevin Dallman went on to a little more NHL success with the St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings before heading to the KHL, but there was a brief pit stop in Boston for 21 games prior to that.
59 – Tim Schaller
The New Hampshire native finished with 19 goals and 36 points in two seasons as a fourth line winger for the Bruins, and some big hits and highlight reel goals to go along with his high-energy play.
60 – Vladimir Sobotka
The Czech forward started off with the Bruins in his career coming up through the ranks with David Krejci and Brad Marchand, and showed some offensive ability to go along with a lot of gritty play. He ended up having his best seasons with the St. Louis Blues getting traded for minor league D-man David Warsofsky.
61 – Craig Cunningham
The Bruins draft pick and former Vancouver Giant played in 34 games for the Bruins as a fourth line center, and displayed all kinds of grit and high energy during his playing days. Cunningham’s career was unfortunately cut short by an episode with his heart prior to an AHL game, but he’s joined the scouting ranks these days.
Best of the Rest: Rick Nash.
62 – Milan Lucic
The first number for power forward Milan Lucic when he joined up with the Bruins before shifting to his iconic No. 17 once it was determined he was sticking around Boston for a while.
63 – Brad Marchand
Whether you call him Nose Face Killah, Little Ball of Hate or Marshmont, the left winger is one of the best players in the NHL while also being one of the biggest pains in the ass to play against as well. When it’s all said and done, Marchand and Patrice Bergeron will go down as one of the best, if not the best, two-man combos in Bruins history.
64 – Jarno Kultanen
Who? A Finnish defenseman, he actually played 102 games in a three-season span between 2000-2003 for the Bruins and finished with two goals and 13 points. I blinked and missed it.
65 – Brett Harkins
Harkins put up four goals and 18 points in 44 games for the Bruins during the 1996-97 season and now serves on the Bruins scouting staff in the Midwest.
67 – Benoit Pouliot
Pouliot had all the talent in the world, but showed in his one season with the Bruins that he alternated between pretty evenly between highlight reel goals and taking offensive zone penalties. The 16 goals and 32 points in 74 games was certainly respectable.
68 – Jaromir Jagr
Jagr brought his aura and his Hall of Fame mullet when he arrived in Boston at the trade deadline, but he couldn’t manage to score even a single goal during Boston’s run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2013. The two goals and nine points in 11 games during the regular season was certainly Jagr-esque.
70 – Tim Thomas
The first number worn by Thomas at the beginning of his stint with the Bruins, where he was battling with goalies like Andrew Raycroft and Felix Potvin for playing time ahead of his Conn Smythe days ahead.
71 – Jiri Slegr
Slegr closed out his NHL career with 68 games played for the Bruins in the 2003-04 and 2005-06 season, posting a respectable 9 goals and 35 points.
72 – Frank Vatrano
It never worked out with the Bruins for the East Longmeadow native and UMass alum, who scored 20 goals in 108 games here and had one of the best shot and releases around. Those skills were certainly evident when he basically scored a goal per game during his time in the AHL.
73 – Michael Ryder
He won a Stanley Cup in his final season in Boston, but it was an up-and-down experience for Ryder with the Bruins. He ended up making a game-winning play in the 2011 postseason when he made an emergency save on a puck in front of the net, and finished with 63 goals and 127 points in three seasons in Boston.
Best of the Rest: Charlie McAvoy.
74 – Jake DeBrusk
The left winger posted 16 goals and 43 points in his rookie season with the Bruins and scored the game-winning goal in Game 7 against the Maple Leafs in the first round of the playoffs. He’s just getting started wearing No. 74 for the Bruins, but it certainly looks like it’s going to be his for a while.
75 – Colton Orr
Orr went on to longer enforcing stints with New York and Toronto after breaking in with the Bruins, but it certainly looked right in the 2005-06 season to once again see Orr on the back of a Black and Gold jersey patrolling the Garden ice.
76 – Dennis Bonvie
Three points and 84 penalty minutes in 23 games for the Bruins kind of tells the story for Bonvie and the No. 76 jersey he briefly wore.
77 – Ray Bourque
A five-time Norris Trophy winner, a 19-time All-Star and the Bruins all-time leader in games played, assists and points only begins to tell the story of Bourque’s Hall of Fame career. The night he gave up No. 7 and donned No. 77 while honoring Phil Esposito has gone down as one of the most iconic moments in Bruins history. In a franchise that’s had some of best D-men in NHL history, Bourque goes down as second-best behind the greatest player of all-time. Not too shabby.
79 – David Warsofsky
The Marshfield native only managed 10 games with the Bruins after getting traded to Boston from the Blues organization. But his one career goal on an end-to-end rush is something that he’ll certainly always remember.
81 – Phil Kessel
Kessel cranked out 66 goals and 126 points in his three seasons with the Bruins after being a high first-round pick, and never once was accused of developing a friendship with a hot-dog vendor during his time in Boston. Phil the Thrill pushed his way out of Boston to avoid playing for Claude Julien, but as it turned out Toronto wasn’t much better for him either.
83 – Patrick Leahy
With all due respect to Patrick Leahy, there haven’t been too many guys that have worn No. 83 in a Bruins uniform. Two, to be exact. Peter Cehlarik still has some time to claim this crown the next time we do this.
86 – Kevan Miller
The UVM alum was another undrafted find for the Bruins, and has turned himself into a tough stay-at-home defenseman who can also skate very well. Miller is never going to be a star player given his blue-collar skill set, but he’s good enough that the Bruins protected him over Colin Miller in the Vegas expansion draft.
88 – David Pastrnak
Pastrnak is barely 22 years old, and he’s already posted 94 goals and 203 points in 254 games while debuting in the NHL at 18 years old. The sky is the limit for a kid that just broke a Wayne Gretzky playoff scoring record with his six-point game against the Maple Leafs, and it might be that nobody else ever gets to wear the No. 88 for the Bruins again. We shall see.
89 – Zdenek Blatny
Blatny played five games for the Bruins and averaged 5:03 of ice time per game in a B’s uniform. There’s literally nothing to write about a player like that.
91 – Marc Savard
A brilliant career cut short by a nasty cheap shot from Matt Cooke, Savard was a point-per-game player for the Bruins with 305 points in 304 career games after signing with the team in 2006. Savard was an artist working the power play off the half-wall and was just reaching the height of his considerable offensive potential when the dirty head shot altered his career.
