Biographical Info

A true Boston Bruin, Johnny Bucyk has been a member of the Bruins in one capacity or another since the 1957-58 season, his first playing with the team. Throughout his 22 year NHL career (20 with Boston), Bucyk seemed to improve as he got older, having hit the 30 goal plateau for the first time in his 12th NHL season, but scored at least 30 goals in 7 of his final 11 seasons. Standing at 6’0 and weighing 215 pounds, Bucyk was a huge man in an era where players were generally much smaller. Although big in size, Bucyk played the game with class and respect for his opponents, as demonstrated by his 2 Lady Byng Memorial Trophies in 1971 and 1974. Bucyk was also an integral part of the Bruins 2 Stanley Cup winning teams in 1970 and 1972. Since his retirement from playing in 1978, Bucyk has held several posts within the Bruins organization both in broadcasting and in the front office. Currently, Bucyk is currently the Bruins director of road services. Bucyk won his third Stanley Cup in this role with the Bruins in 2011. A true hockey great, Johnny Bucyk was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981.
