Regular seasonEdit

  • Bobby Orr made his NHL debut October 19, with an assist in a 6–2 win over Detroit.

Bobby OrrEdit

In his first professional season—although missing nine games with a knee injury presaging such woes throughout his career—he won the Calder Memorial Trophy as the league's outstanding rookie and, while the perennially cellar-dwelling Bruins finished in last place that season, sparked a renaissance that propelled the Bruins to make the playoffs the following twenty-nine straight seasons. New York Rangers defenseman Harry Howell, the winner of the Norris Trophy as the league's best defenseman in Orr's rookie year, famously predicted that he was glad to win when he did, because "Orr will own this trophy from now on."
