National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1966-1967

National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1966-1967

Although the regular season was dominated by the Chicago Blawk Hawks, it was also the season that Bobby Orr made his NHL debut. On October 19th, 1966 the professional game was changed forever.

The Chicago Black Hawks, who had won three Stanley Cups, finished first overall in the standings for the first time in their history. Bobby Hull, scored 52 goals but it was his teamate Stan Mikita who won the Ross Trophy as the league's top scorer, the Hart Trophy as MVP, and the Lady Byng Trophy. The Black Hawks finished 17 points ahead of the second place Montreal Canadiens, Toronto finished third and the New York Rangers were fourth.

In the playoffs Toronto goaltender Terry Sawchuk had an outstanding series, backstopping the Maple Leafs to a six game series win over the Black Hawks. In the other series Montreal swept the Rangers in four games to advance to the finals.

The Maple Leafs defeated the Canadiens 4 games to 2 to win their fourth Stanley Cup under Coach Punch Imlach.
