Ken Hodge won two Stanley Cups (1970 and 1972) with the Boston Bruins during his nine years with the Black and Gold. In all, he spent 14 seasons in the NHL, including stints with the Chicago Black Hawks and New York Rangers. Traded by Chicago to the Bruins along with Phil Esposito in a blockbuster deal, Hodge helped make the Bruins into a powerhouse. He scored a spectacular 45 goals in 1968-69. And in 1970-71, he joined forces with Esposito and Wayne Cashman to form one of the most feared forward lines in NHL history. Hodge broke the league record for points by a Right Wing that season with 105, and finished fourth in the NHL in scoring.

Bruins Esposito, Bobby Orr, Johnny Bucyk, and Hodge finished 1-2-3-4 in league scoring, the first time in NHL history that feat had been accomplished. In 1973-74, Ken scored 50 goals and had 105 points to finish third in the NHL in scoring. The league’s top 4 scorers that season were all Bruins (Esposito, Orr, Hodge, and Cashman), the only other time in NHL history the top four scorers came from the same team. Ken finished his career with 328 goals and 800 points. He was a First Team NHL All-Star in 1971 and 1974, and he played in three NHL All-Star games (1971, 1973, and 1974).
