Number 4, Bobby Orr joined the Boston Bruins at the age of 18 in 1966. This was a team that had not won the Stanley Cup since 1941 or even qualified for the playoffs since 1959. With him the team won the cup in 1970 and 1972 with Bobby scoring the clinching goal in both victories and being named MVP. After winning the Calder Trophy at 18, Orr dominated the NHL for the next eight years and redefined what a defenseman could do. From 1968 to 1975, Orr won all eight Norris Trophies, two Conn Smythes, two Harts and two Art Ross Trophies. But knee injuries started to take their toll and Orr was limited to just 10 games in 1975-76.After winning his eighth Norris Trophy at just 27 years of age, Orr played just 36 more games in the NHL before retiring at 31.
The man not only has a statue, but now you can stay in the Bobby Orr Suite at the Ames Hotel.
Happy Birthday to The Legend!
