#16 – Keith Crowder – 219 Goals- 607 Games Played – 0.36 Goals Per Game

Keith Crowder was one of the most beloved Boston Bruins during his time with the team in the 1980s. The typical hard-nosed, physical forward that the Bruins were known for, Crowder was also a solid goal scorer who contributed for the better part of nine seasons while with the Bruins. When Crowder wasn’t laying out ferocious hits in opposing players, he was skating hard and finding open spots on the ice to score goals.

The Boston Bruins have long been known for employing players such as Keith Crowder on their team; players who can hit hard, and score goals that count. A recent example of a player that could be considered similar to Keith Crowder in today’s NHL would be former Boston Bruins Milan Lucic; a hard hitting power forward with the ability to score roughly 20-30 goals a season when playing at his absolute best.

Pro-rating his 607 games played as a member of the Boston Bruins into 82 game seasons would give Crowder an average of roughly 30 goals per season as a member of the Boston Bruins.
