Boston Bruins fans have been fortunate to witness numerous talented right wings don the Spoked-B sweater over the years.

Determining the greatest right wing in team history is no easy task, as it goes beyond just scoring goals. From Hall of Famers to fan favorites who embodied the Big, Bad Bruins mentality, the list is extensive.

Here are the top five Bruins right wings of all time:

Terry O'Reilly (1972-1985):




Known as "Taz," O'Reilly was a physical force on the ice and a key offensive threat for the Bruins. He holds the franchise record for penalty minutes and recorded an impressive 90-point season in 1977-78.

Ken Hodge (1967-1976):



Hodge played an integral role in the Bruins' Stanley Cup victories in 1970 and 1972. He had multiple seasons with over 100 points and was part of the Bruins' 50-goal club.

David Pastrnak (2015-Present):



Despite playing only two complete seasons, Pastrnak has established himself as an elite right wing. His goal-scoring prowess and offensive contributions have made him a standout player in the league.

Rick Middleton (1976-1988):



Middleton, also known as "Nifty," ranks high in Bruins history for goals and points. He had several 40-goal seasons and recorded two 100-point campaigns.

Cam Neely (1986-1996):



Neely's combination of scoring ability and physicality made him one of the NHL's premier power forwards. He was a three-time member of the Bruins' 50-goal club and earned the admiration of Boston fans.

These right wings have left a lasting impact on the Bruins franchise and have rightfully earned their place in team history.
