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.
