Ray Bourque Boston Bruins Autographed Matted & Framed Display
Lot #600

This beautiful matted & framed display, measuring 32 x 18, commemorates the retiring of Ray Bourque’s famous #77 to the rafters at the Fleet Center on October 4, 2001. The Boston Bruins selected Bourque with the 8th overall pick in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Bourque’s Hall of Fame career spanned a total of 22 seasons with 21 of them being spent in Boston. Sadly, during that time Ray was unable to bring a Stanley Cup home to the Garden though he did lead his team to the Cup Finals twice. Ray’s impressive career accomplishments are too lengthy to list in full; some of the highlights include: 1980 Calder Trophy for NHL Rookie of the Year, 1992 King Clancy Memorial Trophy as the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community, (12) 1st and (6) 2nd Team NHL All Star selections, 18 All Star Game appearances and five Norris Trophies as the leagues best defenseman. In Ray’s last season he finally earned the Trophy that had eluded him his entire career, the Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.

Bourque is the all-time leading scorer among defenseman with 1579 points, which also places him among the elite on the all-time NHL scoring list. Ray is near the top on the all time assists list with 1169, trailing the likes of Gretzky, Messier and Francis. He is also the all-time leading goal scorer among defenseman with 410. Ray also resides in the top 10 all-time leading playoff scorers in NHL history. He was elected to the Hall of Fame on his first ballot in 2004 and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest defenseman in NHL history.

This beautiful display has an 11 x 14 autographed photo of Ray, wearing his Bruins jersey, on the night his number was retired. The display also has a felt replica of Bourque’s retirement banner. The display is in beautiful condition.
