Bobby Orr ranks first in Bruins franchise history in plus-minus with an outstanding plus-589 rating, which also happens to be second all-time. His 1.41 points-per-game, which also ranks first among Bruins in franchise history, surely contributed to such a high plus-minus rating as well. Bobby Orr is also the NHL record-holder for points in a single season by a defenseman with 139, which was simply one of his six-consecutive 100+ point seasons.The list of trophies Orr received were numerous, including a record eight Norris Trophies, two Art Ross trophies, and three consecutive Hart trophies. Bobby Orr’s contributions to the Bruins resulted in two Stanley Cups in 1970 and 1972, and even earned him a statue outside of the Garden. Number 4 will always be #1 in the hearts of Bruins fans, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979.
