Neely's No. 8 to join Bruins' all-time greats
Boston Bruins fans have long counted Cam Neely among the team's all-time greats, despite a career shortened by injury. This season, the team will make
that designation official when it honors the right winger alongside the likes of Bobby Orr and Eddie Shore.
The Bruins will retire Neely's No. 8 in a pregame ceremony Jan. 12, the team announced Tuesday. No Bruins player has worn Neely's number since
injuries forced his retirement in September 1996. Neely, a strong skater and imposing physical presence on the ice, is the 10th Bruins player to have
his number retired.
