Johnny Bucyk 1968 – 70

 

Johnny Bucyk  jersey from 1968 to 1970. This jersey is hammered with repairs. I am still doing research on it to see if it was used in the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals. Nice photo match to the repair on the back side and the number 9 in proper position. Bucyk was born in Edmonton Alberta Canada in 1935. He played for 23 seasons in the NHL which is amazing! During his time in the league, he won 2 Stanley Cups with the Boston Bruins in 1970 and 1972 with help from a guy named Bobby Orr. He started his career with the Detroit Red Wings and played with them for 2 seasons. The next 21 years, he played for the Bruins which is also amazing as players in these days, rarely stay with a team that long. Bucyk played in 1,540 regular season games and adding another 124 in the playoffs. The Chief as he was known,  racked up 556 goals and assisted on 813 more, giving him 1,369 during this time.
