A first round draft choice of the Vancouver Canucks in 1983, CAM NEELY was a good solid forward when he broke into the NHL in 1983-84. In three seasons on Canada's west coast, NEELY played well, but didn't show the dominance he would exhibit later in his career. Before the start of the 1986-87 season, CAM NEELY was traded to Boston, and it was with the Bruins that he hit his stride. In his first three seasons in black and gold, NEELY scored 36, 42 and 37 goals respectively. Then, in 1989-90, NEELY epitomized the NHL power forward, scoring 55 goals, 37 assists and 92 points plus 117 penalty minutes, and was selected for the NHL's Second All-Star Team. The next season, he duplicated this proficiency, scoring 51 goals and 40 assists for 91 points and contributed 98 penalty minutes. Again, NEELY was the NHL's choice on right wing for the Second All-Star Team. But in October 1991, CAM NEELY suffered a serious thigh injury, and missed the first half of the season. When he returned in January 1992, CAM damaged his knee. In 1991-92, NEELY played just nine games, yet scored nine goals. Before the 1992-93 season, NEELY went under the knife to repair his knee, and missed all but 13 games of the season. But again, in those 13 games, NEELY capitalized, scoring 11 goals. During 1993-94, CAM NEELY returned, his knees and thigh more fragile, but still game-ready. He played 49 games, scoring 50 goals and 24 assists for 74 points. To recognize his valiant efforts to return to NHL action after suffering career-threatening injuries, CAM NEELY was awarded the MASTERTON TROPHY for 1993-94. Unfortunately, those injuries finally did end NEELY's career. CAM was forced to retire after the 1995-96 season.
