For those unfamiliar with Bobby.


Robert Gordon Orr, OC (born March 20, 1948) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player, widely acknowledged as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.[1][2] Orr used his ice skating speed, scoring, and play-making abilities to revolutionize the position of defenceman.[3] He played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for 12 seasons, starting with 10 with the Boston Bruins followed by two with the Chicago Black Hawks. Orr remains the only defenceman to have won the league scoring title with two Art Ross Trophies. He holds the record for most points and assists in a single season by a defenceman. Orr won a record eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenceman and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league's most valuable player (MVP). Orr was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979 at age 31, the youngest to be inducted at that time. In 2017 Orr was named one of the '100 Greatest NHL Players' in history.[4] After his hockey career, he became a well-known scout for many professional teams. He also spends time talking to and mentoring young skaters.

Loved watching him flash on the ice. Damn I'm getting old. Then again so is Bobby.
Bet he gets a huge gift basket from Don Cherry.

Certainly a happy B-day from me...without him Mobile D-men would not have happened for a few more years. That guy could skate, shoot and score better than just about anybody of his time.

Err,... shouldn’t this thread be in International Sports as Mr. Orr is Canadian! Lulz!! (I couldn’t help myself with some gentle ribbing!
)

The great Bobby Orr is still amazing to watch! Every time ESPN or NHL Network throws video up, I am still watching every second!

For that reason alone, Happy Birthday!! Never did defense look so good!
