Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr is the best defenseman to ever play the game of hockey. There are some who debate, but to me, Orr will forever be the greatest. His speed, agility, and knack to score goals and find plays for his teammates is something I can't ever see being matched.

Orr made his name known with the Boston Bruins. He held or currently holds many NHL records for defensemen, won two Stanley Cups, eight Norris Trophies, two Conn Smythes, three Hart Trophies, two Art Rosses, a Ted Lindsay, and won the Calder Trophy in 1967. Orr also recorded six straight seasons with 100 or more points.

In 1976-77 and 1978-79, Orr spent time with the Chicago Blackhawks. Unfortunately, he was near the end of his career and was battling a knee injury that eventually took over. Through 26 total games with the Hawks, Orr had six goals and twenty-one assists for 27 points.

Orr finished his 12-year NHL career with 657 games played. He scored 270 goals and added 645 assists for a total of 915 points, an incredible 1.39 point per game career. His best season was the 1970-71 season where he had 37 goals and 102 assists for 139 points.

No defensemen have ever come close to the stats Orr was able to put up during his time. Unfortunately, he wasn't 100% healthy with the Blackhawks and fans often forget he wore anything other than the Black and Yellow.
