WHAT: Boston Bruins greats Terry O’Reilly (‘71-’85) and Rick Middleton (‘76-’88) will be on hand to meet visitors and sign autographs at VICTORY: An Exhibition Celebrating Boston Sports at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
O’Reilly, one of the toughest right-wingers in hockey history, was widely known for his aggressive style. To many, he epitomized what it means to be a Boston Bruin. He was also an NHL All-Star and team captain, who helped lead the Bruins to three (3) Stanley Cup Finals. His #24 was retired by the Bruins and hangs from the rafters of the TD Garden.
Fellow right winger Middleton, also a team captain and All-Star, was consistently among the highest goal scorers in the league. At the height of his career, Middleton had five straight seasons of at least 40 goals and 90 points. All told, in his 12 seasons with the Bruins, Middleton recorded 448 goals and 540 assists in 1005 games. He was nicknamed “Nifty” for his clever stickhandling and deft, acrobatic offensive moves.
