#19 – Sergei Samsonov – 164 Goals- 514 Games Played – 0.32 Goals Per Game

Sergei Samsonov is one of the few Russian players to ever play for the Boston Bruins, and he’s also one of the best goal scorers in the history of the franchise. Samsonov was more than just a goal scorer during his time with the Bruins, but with four 20 goal seasons, including two seasons in which he reached the 29 goal mark, Sergei Samsonov‘s biggest contributions as member of the Boston Bruins certainly came by way of his goal scoring ability.

While Sergei Samsonov didn’t excel on any other team following his tenure with the Boston Bruins, he was still a solid player capable of making plays for a few years. Fans of the Boston Bruins should take solace in the fact that Sergei Samsonov’s best years were far and away his years spent in the hub.

Following his time in Boston, Sergei Samsonov only put up 71 goals and 124 assists for 195 points in 374 games as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, and division rival Montreal Canadiens.

Pro-rating his 514 games played as a member of the Boston Bruins into 82 game seasons would give Samsonov an average of roughly 26 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
