#11 – Peter McNab – 263 Goals – 595 Games Played – 0.44 Goals Per Game

Peter McNab was one of the more naturally gifted Bruins in history. His smooth hands and quick thinking allowed for him to score at least 20 goals in 10 different seasons, seven of which came as a member of the Bruins, as well as six seasons with at least 30 goals, and two with at least 40 goals. Reaching the 250 goal plateau is an impressive mark for any player, whether they played between the 1970s and 1980s like Peter McNab did, or whether they play in todays NHL.

While playing on the Buffalo Sabres before starting his tenure with the Boston Bruins, and while playing for the Vancouver Canucks and New Jersey Devils after his tenure in Boston, McNab was able to score an additional 100 goals. His career mark of 363 goals sits at 124th all time in NHL scoring, one ahead of former Boston Bruin and current San Jose Shark Joe Thornton.

Pro-rating his 595 games played as a member of the Boston Bruins into 82 game seasons would give McNab an average of roughly 36 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
