About the Author
----------------

Bobby Orr, born in Parry Sound, Ontario, in 1948, played for the Boston Bruins from 1966 through 1976, and
helped lead the Bruins to the Stanley Cup championship in 1970 and 1972, and to the finals in 1974. He also played two
years for the Chicago Blackhawks. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest hockey players – maybe the greatest
hockey player – of all time. His speed and scoring and playmaking abilities revolutionized the position of defenseman.
As of this date, he remains the only defenseman to have won the Art Ross Trophy league scoring title – twice – and still
holds the record for most points and assists at that position. Orr won a record eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the
NHL’s best defenseman and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league’s MVP, as well as two Conn Smythe Trophies as
the Stanley Cup MVP. He is the only player in history to have won the Ross, Norris, Hart, and Conn Smythe Trophies in a
single season. He was inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame at the age of 31 – the youngest living player to receive that
honor.

After his retirement in 1978, Orr was active with business and charitable works, and in 1996, Orr entered the player
agent business, and today is president of the Orr Hockey Group agency. He has been invested with the Order of Canada and
the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, and in 2010 was one of eight athletes who bore the Olympic flag out during
the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympics. The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame is in Parry Sound, Ontario.
