One of the most popular players ever to put on a Boston Bruins uniform (and doesn’t that say something!) Cam Neely’s career was taken away far too soon. Neely fought countless injuries, which although is typical for hockey players was exasperated by his attacking style of play. He was a natural goal scorer who three times hit the 50 goal mark, most impressively in the 1993-94 season when he only played 49 games in another of his injury plagued campaigns. Neely would never play more than fifty games in a season after the age of 25, and by 31 his injuries forced him to retire. Although his career numbers from his era may not seem Hall of Fame worthy, he is a four time Second Team All Star selection which indicates his merit in Toronto.
