Regular seasonEdit

  • October 19, 1957 – Maurice Richard scores a goal at 15:52 of the first period. Richard becomes the first player to score 500 goals in a career.
  • Hockey's color barrier was broken in Montreal. Midway through his second minor-league season with the Quebec Aces, Willie O'Ree was called up to the Boston Bruins of the NHL to replace an injured player. O'Ree made his NHL debut with the Bruins on January 18, 1958, against the Montreal Canadiens, becoming the first black player in league history.
