The Chicago Blackhawks had to regret trading away Phil Esposito, but it was in Boston where he developed his scoring touch. Esposito would park himself in front of the net and would shatter the single season scoring record, becoming the first man to score 100 Points in a season. He would hit that plateau six more times winning a total of scoring trophies and two Hart Trophies.
The tenacious centre would set the goal scoring record with 76 Goals, and would eclipse 60 goals for a season four times in Boston and six times led the NHL in Goals scored. Remember, that this was not the free wheeling 80’s, and numbers like this were unheard of!
Esposito was also a natural leader and with his talented teammates in tow, he led them to a pair of Stanley Cup wins. While Bobby Orr received much of the attention, Esposito’s scoring touch would not be seen until a man named Wayne Gretzky came around. Much like he was a leader in Team Canada’s team in the 1972 Summit Series, he was so in Boston.
