Bobby Orr

Arguably the NHL's greatest defensemen ever, Bobby Orr broke into the NHL with the 1966-67 Boston Bruins and went on to take rookie-of-the-year honours. He won the Hart Trophy as the league MVP 3 times and won the James Norris Trophy 8 times as best defenseman.

Orr was equally potent on offense and defense, but he was plagued by knee injuries throughout his career and, in the end, was able to play only nine full seasons. Still, he scored an amazing 270 goals and 645 assists in only 657 regular season games. He is the only defenseman to win the Art Ross Trophy as the league's leading scorer which he won twice.

Shown right is the 800-pound bronze statue outside Boston Garden commemorating Orr's overtime goal against the St. Louis Blues that gave the Bruins the 1970 Stanley Cup.
