Who the heck is Mike Bossy?
Are you not a hockey fan or just young?
Drafted 15th overall in the 1977 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders, Mike Bossy began a stellar 10 year career whereby he established himself
as one of the most talented snipers the game has ever seen.
In a career that began with a Calder Trophy as the NHL's Rookie of the Year, Bossy showcased his consistency with a record 9 consecutive 50+ goal
. As an integral part of the success of the New York Islanders' dynasty that culminated in 4 consecutive Stanley Cups between 1980 to
, Bossy scored the Stanley Cup winning goals two years in a row
making him the only player in NHL history to have done so. In 1982,
Bossy also collected the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.
Bossy's sportsmanlike behaviour on the ice has translated into 3 Lady Byng trophies as the League's most gentlemanly player and he collected a mere
210 minutes of penalties during his 10 year career.
