22. Bobby Bauer

Bobby Bauer’s career only spanned nine seasons (all with Boston), but the Right Wing of the famed “Kraut Line” was a Second Team All Star in four of them.  Bauer was a selfless player who knew how to set up his teammates brilliantly and he was also a player who rarely led aggression get the best of him as he was a three time Lady Byng recipient.

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.
