Robert "Bobby" Orr was born in Parry Sound, Ontario on March 20, 1948. He played defence for the Bruins and is considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest player ever to play the game. He was the only defenceman ever to win a scoring title and one of the few to ever record a 100-point season (Paul Coffee and Brian Leetch being the other two, Ray Borque was close with several 90-point plus seasons). Besides being known for his phenomenal scoring and play-making ability, Orr was also known for his great defensive abilities such as checking, blocking shots, and chasing opposing players. Every aspect of the game, Orr excelled in. Unfortunately, his career was cut short. He was forced to retire at the young age of 28 (what should have been his playing prime) because of injuries. Because of this, he was unable to reach the 1000 point club, something he would have easily done had he played just another few seasons. Still, he was easily elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame and is considered by many to be the greatest player of all time. Orr played for the Boston Bruins during his years in the NHL and won several Stanley Cups with them.
