    Bobby Orr scores 100 points in one season

    On March 15, 1970, Boston Bruin Bobby Orr becomes the first defenseman in NHL history to score 100 points in a season, after scoring four goals in one game against the Detroit Red Wings. Orr would finish the 1969-70 season with 120 points, a record for a defensive player that cemented his status as the best offensive defenseman in NHL history.​

    It's too bad that Bobby Orr couldn't play longer in the NHL.​
