Hockey History As Told By Cardboard - - Mike Bossy


"The Boss" was a pure sniper with a bullet shot and quick release. He set an NHL rookie record with 53 goals in 1977-78 and won the Calder Trophy. He had five playoff hat tricks, ranks third all-time in plyoff goals and eighth in playoff points. Mike shares an NHL record for game-winning goals in a playoff year with 5 (1983), and is sole holder of the record for playoff power-play goals in a career, 35. A back injury forced him to retire October 24, 1988.

Of course, all these stats were as of the printing of the 1990-91 Pro Set cards and there wasn't another young, future HOFer quite ready to break that rookie record yet.
