Bourque, Ray
Boston Bruins

It was hard to argue that any other defenseman could compete with the Bruins' captain, RAYMOND BOURQUE. He was a leader, aiding Boston's young blueline crew with the rigours of NHL play. He was an offensive force too, scoring 21 times and assisting on 71 others for 91 points in 1993-94. But as a defenseman, BOURQUE was peerless. In 1993-94, Boston finished second to Pittsburgh in the Northeast Division, led by the Montreal-born BOURQUE. And again, the Bruins would fail to capture the Stanley Cup. In fact, it wasn't until BOURQUE said goodbye to the Bruins and joined the Colorado Avalanche in 2000-2001 that he would enjoy the champagne-filled Stanley Cup celebrations. But in 1993-94, RAYMOND BOURQUE led his team in every capacity. He was an important mentor for young Bruins blueliners. He was an offensive threat, scoring 20 goals and 71 assists for 91 points. And he was, once again, selected as the finest at his craft, earning the NORRIS TROPHY for a fifth (and final) time. For the second time in his career, Scott Stevens of New Jersey finished as runner-up.
