Lot #615

This beautiful matted and framed display, measuring 12 x 14, depicts a fight between Dave Schultz and Terry O’Reilly from a game on March, 30, 1974. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Schultz in the 5th round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. He made his debut with the Flyers in 1971-72 and carved out a reputation as the all-time greatest goon in NHL history over the next decade. Schultz and the “Broad Street Bullies” went to 3 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals 1974-76 and won back-to-back Cups in 1974 and 75. Schultz established the NHL record for penalty minutes in a season when he amassed 472 PIMS in 1974-75. In addition, he registered another 3 years of better than 300+ PIMS, ending his short 535 game career with an astounding 2294 PIMS. Schultz left Philadelphia and joined the LA Kings in 1976-77. Early the following season, “The Hammer” was dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins where he played for parts of 2 years. Schultz’s final stop was with the Buffalo Sabres where he spent another couple of seasons, retiring following the 1979-80 campaign.

The Boston Bruins selected O’Reilly in the 1st round of the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft. He spent 14 years in the NHL, all of them with the Bruins. O’Reilly ranks among the all-time fan favorites that ever skated on the Boston Gardens ice. He served as the Bruins Captain during his last 2 years in the league after the retirement of Wayne Cashman. O’Reilly partook in 2 NHL All Star games and was as tough a customer as the Bruins faithful had ever seen. In 891 career games, this power forward scored 204 goals and 606 points while amassing 2095 PIMS! In 108 playoff games, O’Reilly netted another 25 goals and 67 points while accumulating 335 PIMS! He took on all comers and his exploits could fill volumes of fight tapes! Following his retirement, O’Reilly took over as the Bruins head coach part way thru the 1986-87 season and remained in that role for 2 more years, leading his Bruins to the 1988 Stanley Cup Finals. Terry’s player #24 was retired to the rafters on October 24, 2002 and is one of only 11 Bruins whose player number has been retired by the Bruins.

The display is in beautiful condition and will be accompanied by a Hammer Enterprises COA.
