127. Bob Baun

Bobby Baun reminds us a lot of Paul Henderson in that he is best known for one game.  Baun fractured his ankle early in Game 3 of the 1964 Stanley Cup Championship but returned to the ice to score the game-winning goal against the Detroit Red Wings and would help Toronto win the Cup that year.

Overall Bob Baun had an excellent stay-at-home blueline career in the National Hockey League where he was a five time All Star, four time Stanley Cup winner and was the NHL leader in Defensive Point Shares (1960-61).  He is also a five time All Star.
