What an honor to talk with this week’s guest — my good friend and Boston Bruins legend Rick “Nifty” Middleton.
A first round draft pick of the NY Rangers in 1973, Nifty scored 448 career goals and 988 career points in 14 sensational NHL seasons with the Rangers and Bruins. He topped 40 goals and 90 points for five consecutive seasons in the 1980s and played in three NHL All Star Games and Two Canada Cups.
While his stick handling and offensive flair were legendary, he also was also a great two-way player and is the Bruins all-time leader in shorthanded goals.
Nifty is now the president of the Bruins Alumni Association, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for those in need. Nifty is one of hockey’s great ambassadors and is certainly worthy of having his #16 hanging from the rafters of the Boston Garden.
Prior to the interview we want to tell you about an opportunity for fans to deliver their memories of Rick Middleton and the Boston Bruins right to Nifty himself!
Nifty’s audiobook library allows you to record, share or even add a picture or two to your story of Rick and the classic bruins of the 1970s and 80s. Rick will add your story to his audio book library and share it for all Bruins fans to enjoy.
Rick talks about this opportunity during our interview, but to learn more visit BostonBruins alumni.com or audio library.net
