Drafted by Los Angeles in 1969, Butch Goring’s first nine years in the league were steady; he averaged 30 goals per season and developed into a complete player and team leader. He is famous for wearing a helmet — that he received as a 12-year-old — for his entire career. At the trading deadline in 1980, the Kings traded him to the New York Islanders. He was a catalyst for the team and Goring won the Conn Smythe trophy as the Islanders won the first of their four consecutive trophies. After being traded to Boston in 1984, he knew that his career was winding down. His dream of coaching was realized when he became the Bruins’ bench boss the next season. After a year and a half, he coached several minor league teams before returning to the Islanders for two seasons. Butch currently serves as a TV analyst for the Islanders.
