Owner of the most famous mask in NHL history, Cheevers won 226 games for the Bruins over 12 seasons and two stints in Boston. In 1970 and 1972, Cheevers backstopped the ‘Big Bad Bruins’, led by Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, and Johnny Bucyk, to two Stanley Cups. From the late 60s until that 1972 Cup win, the Bruins were one of the best teams in the league year in and year out.
After 1972, Cheevers jumped to the Cleveland Crusaders in the WHA where he went 98-78-9 in four seasons before returning to Boston for the final five seasons of his career. He retired following the 1979-80 season. His 226 victories rank fourth all-time in Bruins history. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985.
