#1 – Phil Esposito – 459 Goals Goals – 625  Games Played- 0.73 Goals Per Game

Phil Esposito. The most prolific goal scorer in the history of the Boston Bruins, and the entire National Hockey League. His 459 goals in 625 games as a member of the Boston Bruins amounts to a ridiculous 0.73 goals per game average, ranking him #1 in average goals per game. With four 60 goal seasons under his belt and even a season in which he notched 76 goals, Esposito was arguably the biggest factor for the Bruins success in the 1970s outside of only Bobby Orr.

Esposito was eventually traded to the New York Rangers, but his goal scoring success didn’t end after his tenure with the Boston Bruins did as he was able to score a total of 717 goals in 1282 games — good for 0.56 goals per game — which ranks him #6 on the all time goals scorer list in NHL history.

Pro-rating his 625 games played into 82 game seasons would give Esposito an average of roughly 60 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
