 Boston Bruins Official Web Site : Eddie Shore: The Edmonton Express Stops In Boston   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Shore scored at least 11 goals in each of his first five seasons with Boston -- huge scoring totals, especially for a defenseman, in an era of defense, goaltending and 48-game regular seasons -- and topped out with 15 goals in 44 games in 1930-31.
Shore became the first defenseman to ever be named MVP, and he spent the rest of the decade proving it wasn't a fluke: He won it three more times, including back-to-back seasons (1934-35 and '35-36), giving him a four-Hart total no defenseman -- not even Boston's Bobby Orr -- has matched.
Shore, who turned 36 a few weeks into the schedule, played what proved to be his last complete season and earned his seventh and final first-team All-Star selection after a 4-goal, 18-point season that included only 37 minutes in penalties.
