BOBBY ORR TRADED INTO NHL LEGENDS 5 LINEUP
#4 Is a Blackhawk in Upcoming Hockey Series
Friday, March 30, 2007
We've got a lineup change to announce for our NHL Legends 5 series. Our Don Cherry sequel figure encountered some delays, and will be pushed back to a later series. The opening in the lineup will be filled by our original Bobby Orr figure, updated to reflect his two seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks.
The finalized NHL Legends 5 lineup features three of the NHL's all-time greatest players in uniforms that appeal to diehard hockey fans and Sports Picks collectors. Bobby Orr became a household name through a decade in Boston, but his final games in the NHL were spent with the Chicago Blackhawks. Wayne Gretzky's legend was built in Edmonton, before he revitalized California hockey with the Kings - but he spent 31 games as a Blue in 1996, when St. Louis fell one goal shy of the Western Conference Finals. Bobby Hull will forever be remembered as a Chicago Blackhawk, but he scored 307 goals for the Winnipeg Jets, shepherding them through the WHA and into the NHL.
These three players are saluting the teams and cities they spent some time in, while Montreal's Guy LaFleur is showcased in his Canadiens uniform, which he wore for 14 glorious seasons.
NHL Legends 5 is due in stores late this September. Stay tuned to SPAWN.com for photography of this series.
