Bruins Honor Hall Of Famer Milt Schmidt Before Leafs Game
Boston Bruins honor Hall of Famer Milt Schmidt
BOSTON (AP) – It's Milt Schmidt Night in Boston.
The Bruins honored the hockey Hall of Famer on Thursday night
for his unique service to the team. He's the only man to have
served as Bruins captain, coach and general manager.
Schmidt received miniature replicas of the two Stanley Cups he
won as a player, in 1939 and '41. Then he told the crowd: “The
spoked 'B' is practically my family crest. And I wouldn't have it
any other way.”
Schmidt was a four-time All-Star and the 1951 Hart Trophy winner
as the NHL MVP. He also was the GM for the 1970 and '72 champions.
He was the center on the “Kraut Line” with Woody Dumart and
Bobby Bauer that was the first line in NHL history to finish 1-2-3
in league scoring.
