Bobby Orr had a unique style in the way he played the game of ice hockey. He was known for his fast skating and the end-to-end rushing on the ice. He was usually where the puck was, so he was able to block a lot of shots, as well as score a lot of shots. He was a force to be reckoned with on both offense and defense. His quickness and determination are what made him stand out on the ice; a tough competitor who always pushed himself as well as his teammates.
Orr played more than 600 hockey games in his career. His awards are numerous, and he broke more than a few records during his time with the Bruins. Among his many accomplishments, Orr married Margaret Louise Wood and they had two boys together. By 1978, Orr had undergone over a dozen of knee surgeries due to toll the game took on his body. After retiring in 1978, Orr was the leading defensemen in league history in goals, assists, and points. At the age of 31, Bobby Orr was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His jersey was retired in 1979 by the Boston Bruins in January of 1979/
