BOSTON - The NHL season may be on pause, but the Bruins have been great throughout history!
25. Milan Lucic
Lucic played eight seasons with the Bruins as a left-winger. His physicality helped Boston hoist the Stanley Cup in 2011.
24. Ken Hodge
Hodge was a three-time All-Star and guided the Bruins to two titles with his stellar control of the ice in the 1960s and 1970s.
23. Wayne Cashman
Cashman played in the same era as Hodge and even wound up coaching for a season in 1997.

21. Bill Cowley
Cowley skated for Boston from 1935 to 1947, winning the scoring title in 1941 and netting himself two MVP trophies.

Thornton's time in Boston ended much too soon. The first overall pick in 1997 was electric, if not injury prone. He was eventually traded to the Sharks.

Marchand is a scrappy one who is now thriving in his pairing with David Pastrnak.
