Boston Bruins: Top 30 Players In Bruins History

20 of 31

#12 Terry O’ Reilly

Terry O’ Reilly will likely go down as one of the finest enforcers the Bruins ever had. He earned over two hundred points in penalties for five straight seasons. O’Reilly finished his career with thirteen NHL seasons (all in Boston) with over two thousand penalty minutes. He was part of the infamous event at Madison Square Garden in 1979, where O’Reilly climbed the glass to engage spectators in a brawl that led to an eight game suspension. He was captain of the team for his final two seasons in Boston.

After retiring, he became the Boston Bruins head coach for two seasons, taking the Bruins to the Stanley Cup final in 1988.

The Bruins chose to retire his number in 2002.
