Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Bobby Orr
- I’ve been a very lucky guy. I played on championship teams. I played for Canada. I’ve won some awards and I’m very proud of those accomplishments. But I don’t think there’s anything greater than to come home and to be recognized at home. This is the pinnacle.
- There are no environments where you’re only going to win, because life just isn’t like that.
- I never looked at hockey as work. Now that I’d finished playing, I had to go to work.
- If you’re going to help somebody, sneak in, sneak out, do what you can. I just sneak along and do my thing and meet wonderful people, some people I’ve never met, new friends.
- Developing better people should be the number one goal for any coach when dealing with kids. In trying to develop better people, we are going to develop more and better pros.
- The biggest thing we get out of it is seeing the kids smile. And hopefully we will also see that the lessons we’re teaching – not only the fundamentals of hockey, but also the life values – are sinking in.
- Minor sports in the community is fun and recreation for everyone, not just the elite. I think back to my days in minor hockey and those are my fondest memories, having fun.
- Everyone should have the same opportunity, and in many areas that’s not the case because programs are built around the elite.
- The kids wait for it to be organized. They want to go play all of these tournaments, for a little practice time. I learned my skills by dropping the puck just with the kids. I think that’s missing today.
- Growing up, if I hadn’t had sports, I don’t know where I’d be. God only knows what street corners I’d have been standing on and God only knows what I’d have been doing, but instead I played hockey and went to school and stayed out of trouble.
Bobby Orr, born on March 20, 1948, in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada, is widely regarded as one of the greatest defensemen in the history of ice hockey. Orr’s illustrious career spanned from 1966 to 1978, primarily with the Boston Bruins in the NHL.
Known for his exceptional speed, offensive prowess, and defensive skills, Orr revolutionized the role of defensemen in hockey. He played a crucial role in leading the Bruins to two Stanley Cup championships in 1970 and 1972, earning the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP both times.
In the 1969-70 season, Orr made history by becoming the first defenseman to lead the league in scoring, setting a record for most points by a defenseman in a single season. His offensive contributions, combined with his defensive reliability, earned him a record-breaking eight Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman.
Despite persistent knee injuries that ultimately cut short his career, Orr’s impact on the game is enduring. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979 and continues to be a revered figure in the hockey community, remembered not only for his on-ice excellence but also for the lasting influence he had on the sport.
