Boston Bruins: Top 30 Players In Bruins History

28 of 31

#4 Eddie Shore

(From Causeway Crowd’s Brandon Share-Cohen)

Eddie Shore spent parts of 14 seasons with the Boston Bruins, and was a part of their two first Stanley Cup victories in 1929 and in 1939. If Norris Trophies were awarded to the NHL’s best defenseman at the time, then Shore would have surely been awarded a few throughout his career. The Hart trophy did exist, however, and Shore was the recipient of four Hart Trophy victories. Eddie Shore ranks sixth in franchise history with the Bruins with 279 points, as well as sixth in penalty minutes with 1038. It should be noted that the NHL season lengths were considerably shorter at the time — roughly half of what they are now — which makes his totals even more impressive when pro-rated. Eddie Shore was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1947.
