#4 – Rick Middleton – 402 Goals – 881 Games Played – 0.46 Goals Per Game

Rick Middleton would probably be in the competition for the #1 spot for a lot of other NHL franchises for top goal scorer in history, but unfortunately he fell just short of the mark for the Bruins. His 402 goals in 881 games ranks him third all-time in goals scored among Bruins players. Middleton is also one of only three Bruins to have scored 400 or more goals in a career, thanks largely in part to his consecutive 40 goal seasons from 1979 until 1984. As consistent a scorer as it gets, Rick Middleton will rank among the top five Bruins goal scorers in history for a very long time.

Pro-rating his 881 games played as a member of the Boston Bruins into 82 game seasons would give Middleton an average of roughly 37 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
