Bobby Orr Statue to be Unveiled Monday

BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Bruins are unveiling a statue of Bobby

Orr in his defining moment.

The bronze sculpture depicts the most beloved player in team

history flying through the air with his arms outstretched after

scoring the goal that clinched the 1970 Stanley Cup championship

against the St. Louis Blues. It's scheduled to be unveiled Monday

outside the TD Garden.

The ceremony comes on the 40th anniversary of the goal.

Orr is expected to attend along with Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs,

Boston Mayor Tom Menino (meh-NEE'-noh) and some of Orr's teammates.

The 600-pound statue is 110 percent of life size. It was

designed by renowned sports sculptor Harry Weber. It will be on

permanent display outside the arena.
