Boston Bruins: Top 20 Goal Scorers in Franchise History

14 of 21

#8 – Ken Hodge – 289 Goals – 652 Games Played – 0.44 Goals Per Game

Ken Hodge was one of the all-time great Bruins who never won over the crowd. Coming at a time where Bruins fans expected a player of Hodge’s size — 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds — to physically intimidate opponents, Hodge was more of a skilled player as his statistics reflect. In eight of his nine seasons as a member of the Boston Bruins, Hodge scored at least 20 goals, as well as over 40 goals twice, even reaching the 50 goal mark in the 1973-73 season. Hodge was the right wing on a line with Phil Esposito for years, making his goal totals even more impressive given Esposito’s famed goal scoring career.

Pro-rating his 652 games played as a member of the Boston Bruins into 82 game seasons would give Hodge an average of roughly 36 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
