Despite his relatively short NHL career, we like the Veteran’s Committee induction of Bobby Bauer
. He only had seven complete seasons in the National Hockey League, but his prime was taken away from his as he participated in World War II. He spent his professional career with the Boston Bruins, and was a member of the famed “Kraut Line” with Woody Dumart & Milt Schmidt (both of them Hall of Fame inductees) and was part of two Stanley Cups for the Bruins in 1939. Four times, (and again remember out of seven seasons) Bauer was named the Second Team All Star at Right Wing, and three times his class was shown as the Lady Byng Trophy winner. This is one Veteran’s Category inductee that we approve of completely.
