Encyclopedia > Johnny Bucyk

John Paul "Chief" Bucyk (born on May 12, 1935, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) is a Hockey Hall of Famer who spent most of his career with the Boston Bruins. May 12 is the 132nd day of the year (133rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1935 (MCMXXXV) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display full calendar). ... Edmonton is the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, situated in the north central region of the province, an area with some of the most fertile farm land on the prairies. ... The Hockey Hall of Fame is in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; it is devoted to ice hockey rather than the field variety of the game. ... The Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts. ...


Bucyk was a skilled left winger who was (at 6', 215 lb) the largest of his day. While he never was regarded as the best at his position, he had a long and stellar career and retired as the fourth leading point scorer of all time and having played the third most games in history. Despite his reputation for devastating hip checks, he was a notably clean player who won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for sportsmanship in 1971 and 1974. The Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, formerly known as the Lady Byng Trophy, is presented each year to the National Hockey League hockey player voted to have shown the best sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with performance in play. ... The 1970-71 NHL season was the 54th season of the National Hockey League. ... The 1973-74 NHL season was the 57th season of the National Hockey League. ...


Bucyk played junior hockey for four seasons for his hometown Edmonton Oil Kings before signing with the Detroit Red Wings in 1955. Two modest years later in 1958, he was traded to the Bruins in a surprising deal for Terry Sawchuk, one of the greatest goaltenders of the day. To this day, the deal is considered one of the most one-sided trades in NHL history. This article refers to the original Oil Kings franchises that existed until 1978. ...

Bucyk more than justified the deal by becoming an immediate star in Boston with his Uke Line partners of Vic Stasiuk and Bronco Horvath, helping Horvath to finish fifth in the league in scoring in 1958 and second in 1960, tying with Bobby Hull of Chicago in goals. Vic John Stasiuk (born May 23, 1929 in Lethbridge, Alberta) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey left winger and a former NHL head coach. ...

However, thereafter the team fell on hard times in the Sixties, finishing in last place five straight seasons, during which time Bucyk -- generally paired with center Murray Oliver and winger Tommy Williams -- led the team in scoring several times. When the Bruins became a powerhouse in the late Sixties, Bucyk -- by then the team captain -- rose with the pack, with great production including a 51-goal season in the 1970-71 season in his mid-thirties, and helping the Bruins to win two Stanley Cup titles in 1970 and 1972. Bucyk was particularly effective playing on the left side on Boston's greatly feared power play unit, which featured Phil Esposito, John McKenzie, Bobby Orr and Fred Stanfield.

Frederick William Stanfield (born May 4, 1944 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a former professional ice hockey left winger who played 14 seasons in the National Hockey League from 1964 until 1978. ...


Bucyk was an effective player into his penultimate season, and retired after the 1978 season, after which the Bruins retired his number #9 jersey. He scored 545 goals as a Bruin, the most in franchise history. Only Ray Bourque scored more points (goals and assists).
