13. Rick Middleton
In many ways, Rick Middleton was not your prototypical Boston Bruin, as he was known for his sportsmanlike conduct on the ice, however the Boston fans loved “Nifty” for his playmaking skills and scoring capability.
Middleton would be a point per game player as a Bruin and would be named a Second Team All Star once.
