"Goals live on the other side of obstacles and challenges. Be relentless in pursuit of those goals, especially in the face of obstacles. Along the way, make no excuses and place no blame." -- Ray Bourque
Considered by most to be one of - if not the - greatest defencemen to ever play in the NHL, Ray Bourque holds the All-time NHL records for Goals, Assists and Points by a defenceman. He won the Norris Trophy (Best Defenceman) 5 times and finished second in voting for the award an additional 6 times. He was a 19-time All-Star, named to the NHL First-Team an incredible 13 times. He won his lone Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche in 2001. Bourque is also the all-time Shots leader (with almost 1,000 shot lead over 2nd place Jaromir Jagr). He holds several NHL records, too many to list here.
