Boston Bruins: Top 30 Players In Bruins History

5 of 31

#27 Derek Sanderson

Sanderson is still regarded as one of the toughest players to suit up in a Bruins uniform. His 67-68 rookie season saw him win the respect of his opponents and fans, and the Calder Cup for the best rookie player. Sanderson was part of two Stanley Cup teams for Boston (1970, 1972). He was also the player that passed the puck to Bobby Orr moments before that leaping goal was immortalized in hockey history. While Sanderson’s career soon spiraled down after leaving Boston, he has endeared himself to Bruins fans over the years.
